Gardeners and others vexed by plant problems and insect nuisances can send their particular pest questions to a panel of University of Wyoming horticultural experts for monthly live webinars beginning Thursday, June 25.
UW Extension county offices are host sites, said Chris Hilgert, state master gardener coordinator and a member of the panel. Other panelists are extension specialists Scott Schell, entomologist, Karen Panter, horticulture, and William Stump, plant pathologist.
Hilgert asked residents to let local extension office know they want to attend the “Plants, Pests, and Pathogens” webinar series. They should also send in their questions and any photographs that help show a particular problem.
The four will give updates about plant and insect questions they have observed around the state then answer questions sent from residents and those asked at the host sites.
All sessions are noon to 1:30 p.m. Dates in addition to June 25 are Thursday, July 30, Wednesday, Aug. 26, and Thursday, Sept. 24. The conferencing software Zoom is being used, said Hilgert, which allows 25 host sites. Panelists will be on the UW campus in Laramie.
