Ever wonder about those “Apple Maggot Quarantine Area: Do Not Transport Home Grown Fruit” signs you see heading north on I-5 and east on 522? Ever make you feel a tetch skitchy living in a Quarantine Area?
Come learn what you can do to control the dreaded apple maggot in your own backyard. Lily writes:
I am organizing an I.P.M. Workshop at the Good Shepherd Center this Sunday morning, May 24th from 9 am to 11 am which will teach people how to protect fruit trees from Apple Maggot and Codling moth as well as help them to learn how to look for signs that their fruit may need such protection.
The presentation will feature with John Reardon, Vice President of the Seattle Tree Fruit Society.
