Integrated Pest Management

Courses and Workshops

Our courses are designed for University Extension field faculty, Extension Master Gardeners, agency professionals, and crop consultants on identification of insects - both beneficial and pesky bugs.

Participants create their own sample collections to use in their follow-up educational projects.  These volunteers can identify pests of the Pacific Northwest and will help others do the same.

  • Collecting, mounting, and identifying pests,
  • Using a stereo microscope, and
  • Using pest keys.

Training also includes pest management and creation of an educational display.
