Ecologically-Sound Mosquito Management at Home

March 2 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am PST

Free

Mosquitos are a nuisance at best and health risk at worst, so it’s understandable why many people turn to insecticides to try and control these pests. Though spraying may seem like a quick and easy way to deal with mosquitos, it’s often an ineffective control strategy. Worse, these insecticides are toxic to pollinators and other beneficial insects. Join Aaron Anderson, Xerces Pesticide Program Specialist, to touch on the risks that mosquito spraying poses and discuss practical, alternative methods of mosquito control in residential landscapes.

This free Xerces Society webinar will be recorded and available on our YouTube channel. Closed Captioning will be available during this webinar.
