03/19/2023 - Predators and Parasitoids in the Garden

Sunday March 19, 2023

SPEAKER MEETING: Don’t jump to conclusions when you see insects in your garden—many are providing free pest management! Insects, like lady beetles, lacewings, wasps, mantids, and more, are worth getting to know. In addition to reducing pest populations, many insect predators have fascinating life histories that enhance the complexity and wonder of our gardens. We will be participating in a Zoom meeting provided by Fulton County Extension Agent and entomologist Gabrielle LaTora. She will cover common insect predators in the garden and easy ways we can conserve them.

LOCATION: Hadensville Fire Co #6 - 4810 Three Chopt Rd, Louisa, VA 23093. (Go South on Rt 606 just west of Duke's Auto, to the parking lot entrance on your left.) The meeting room is on the southwest side of the building, going in the door farthest to the right when facing the building.

1:00PM - Potluck Luncheon and social hour. Bring your favorite dish to share! Hospitality (bottled water, plates, cutlery, etc.) will be provided by the club.
2:00PM - Zoom Meeting promptly at 2pm, with business meeting conducted afterward.

(NOTE: In-person attendance at this meeting will count toward Annual Meeting Attendance requirements.)
