This informative workshop introduces you to Integrated Pest Management (IPM) techniques, companion planting, and how to make creative pest traps from repurposed materials found at home. Homeowners who apply these techniques will minimize their chemical impact on the environment. Participants will make a mosquito or white fly trap to take home. Please bring a plastic liter bottle for the workshop. We’ll be repurposing it for your insect trap.
