Friend or Foe and How to Know: Some Tricks for Identifying Larvae of Insects on and in Woody Plants
Most Master Gardeners can tell the difference between a lady beetle and a mealybug. Did you know the larvae of some species of lady bugs are covered with white wax and are often misidentified as mealybugs and treated with insecticides? This presentation will teach gardeners some tricks to help them tell the difference between the immature stages of garden pests and beneficial insects that eat them.
