Integrated Pest Management Techniques
Volunteer Thompson Shuswap Master Gardeners use Integrated Pest Management techniques with regular monitoring of the MacDonald Park Public Produce Garden.

Tonight Vicky blasted the aphids with a strong spray of water to dislodge the aphids from the underside of the currant leaves.
