How to control pests without harsh chemicals

The Snohomish County Fruit Society will host a presentation on managing pests from 7 to 9 p.m. May 10 at the Snohomish Library.
Ingela Wanerstrand, a member of the Seattle Tree Fruit Society and owner of Green Darner Garden Design, will talk about preventing or treating pests and diseases without using harsh chemicals. Wanerstrand will cover codling moth, apple maggot fly, scab and fungal diseases demonstrations, as well as some hands-on demonstrations, such as installing maggot barriers, a stretchy nylon sleeve that goes over the fruit when it is very small.
The Snohomish County Fruit Society is the newest chapter of Western Cascade Fruit Society. The meeting is open to the public. For more information on the Snohomish County Fruit Society, call 425-398-5544.
The Snohomish Library is at 311 Maple Ave., Snohomish. The Cascade Fruit Society website is www.wcfs.org.
