 Brief course description While we often call all insects, pillbugs, and even spiders ‘bugs’, true bugs are only one kind of insect. Bugs include some of our peskiest pests, such as aphids and mealybugs – and also some of our most valued beneficial garden predators, such as bigeyed bugs and minute pirate bugs. In the wild, they all fill an important role. Learn how to recognize these sometimes highly cryptic insects, and how to manage them effectively in gardens. Short lectures are accompanied by hands-on lab time and Garden walks.
