October 21: Controlling Ants Around the Home
*New Time: 12:00-1:00pm PDT
Ants are one of the most common pests in urban areas. Most ant species live in colonies which enables them to quickly exploit any food resources around or inside homes. They also tend landscape pests such as aphids and scale insects contributing to garden pest problems. In this presentation, I will cover the diversity, biology, and management of some of the most common ants in California. Presenter: Dr. Siavash Taravati, Area IPM Advisor for Los Angeles County
