Controlling Pests And Other Lawn & Garden Help From Our Experts

Jul 26, 2016

The bright metallic-green Japanese Beetle is one of the more distinctive, and destructive, garden pests in our region.

Whether you are growing fruits and vegetables or prefer ornamental flowers in your landscaping, this is the time of year pests can invade and quickly damage or destroy your plants. 

If not properly controlled, aphids, mites, millipedes, slugs, snails and other pests can wipe-out all of your hard work in a short amount of time.

Joining us with advice on controlling lawn and garden pests and to answer your other gardening questions are Campbell County Extension Office Horticulture Agent Sarah Stolz; Community Garden Manager with the Turner Farm Community Garden Program, Joshua Jones; and Assistant Professor in The Ohio State University Department of Entomology and Ohio State Extension Agent for Hamilton County, Joe Boggs.
