Thrips to Palm Weevils: Identifying and Managing Horticultural Pests of San Diego County

While San Diego offers ideal conditions to grow many different crops, it also allows a wide range of pests to flourish. Learn to identify and manage some of the most damaging insect pests found in San Diego, including South American Palm Weevil, Asian Citrus Psyllid, Black Fig Fly, and Thrips parvispinus.

Dr. Eric Middleton is the UCCE Integrated Pest Management advisor for San Diego, Orange, and Los Angeles Counties. Eric is passionate about sustainable agriculture and investigating practical pest management solutions. His goals are to conduct research that is directly applicable to the needs of growers, to promote practices that have less of an impact on the environment, and to share his findings in a way that is accessible to everyone.
