Good Bug, Bad Bug, presented by UC Master Gardener John Fike.
Our yards, gardens, orchards, forests, and open spaces are teeming with small creatures whose very essence is essential to the healthy ecosystem we call home. UC Master Gardener John Fike will provide a new and fascinating perspective regarding the 6-legged creatures that constitute over half of all living organisms on Earth.
Good Bug, Bad Bug will provide a snapshot image of the fascinating insect populations all around us. Insect pests (bad bugs) that commonly occupy our gardens will be shown alongside the beneficial insects (good bugs) that prey on them. Nature has provided a safer and arguably better solution to insect control than using toxins in the environment.
There will be time for questions and answers after the presentation. No charge.
