Hands On Pest ID Training
At this year’s Florida Ag Expo, attendees will have the opportunity to participate in a 50 minute pest identification session that focuses on key pests of horticultural crops, including whiteflies, spider mites, aphids, and thrips. This will be a hands-on session that will teach participants how to identify pests using a hand lens, microscope, and the naked eye. In addition, participants will learn to identify common natural enemies that help control these pests, including predators, and parasitoids. The session will be led by Dr. Hugh Smith, vegetable entomologists at GCREC. CEUs will be available for this session.
The workshop will be held in the entomology laboratory, room 130, at 1:00 PM and 2: 30 PM, the same schedule as the field tours. Each session is limited to 20 participants. Please register with Christine Cooley (email@example.com) to reserve a place. For more information contact Hugh Smith (firstname.lastname@example.org; telephone: 813-633-4124).
