No “Bad Bugs” – A Master Gardener Volunteer Program (10:30 am - 11:30 am)

Woodlawn, in collaboration with the University of Maine Cooperative Extension Master Gardener program, is offering a program on beneficial bugs.  Do you know that many wasps help control caterpillars in your garden, or that many adult beetles are pollen feeders and thus incidental pollinators? There are no “bad bugs.”  Marjorie Peronto and Reeser Manley will explain how your garden can become a refuge for beneficial insects by eliminating the word “pest” from your vocabulary.  The program is free and open to the public.  Donations, however, are greatly appreciated.  Please call Woodlawn at 667-8671 or email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
