This workshop will cover common pests like whitefly (pictured), aphids, thrips and mite species that affect floriculture crops.

Mike Short, owner of Eco Habitat AgriServices and a consultant in the Niagara area for over 20 years, will guide attendees through scouting basics, understanding pest and their natural enemies, and how pesticides fit into it all.

I will be running a mini-session on the importance of different thrips species in the greenhouse, their control, and most importantly, how to ID them.

To attend this workshop, which runs from 8:30-3pm on March 1, register with Rachelle at Flowers Canada Ontario by email: rachelle@fco.ca or phone: 1.800.698.0113 ext. 4230.
