Free Florida-friendly gardening workshops in December

Encouraging beneficial insects

Citrus County Utilities Florida-Friendly Landscaping™ Program is offering a free gardening workshop on December 4, 2017 from 2:00-3:30 pm.

An important component of pest management strategies is identifying damaging insects.

Many insects found in the landscape due little or no harm, while some are vital to food production.  Identifying the beneficial and pollinator visitors must be considered when applying harmful products minimizing potential damage to non-targeted pests.    Classes are held at the Citrus County Extension Service building located at 3650 W Sovereign Path in Lecanto.  Please contact Steven Davis at (352) 527-5708 to confirm your participation or use link below for registration.
