We are under attack. Recently, the introduction of new invasive pests into the United States has been increasing. In the past ten years, the gardens of Southern California (and around the country) have been forced to develop novel control methods for a multitude of new and potentially destructive invasive species. In this session, participants will learn about the latest developments in new pests and the processes used to control them. By offering examples from their own recent work, panel members will highlight successful methodologies for approaching significant invasive pest species as they help audience members discover how those methods may be applied in their own organizations.
