Few garden pests along the Front Range match the destructive power of the Japanese beetle. These invasive beetles can decimate your beloved gardens, leaving nothing but skeletonized leaves and weakened plants in their wake. A little knowledge goes a long way in the battle against the beetle. Join Lisa Mason, Horticulture Agent, from Colorado State University Extension to learn about the insect’s life cycle, suggested plants to avoid in your landscape, pollinator-friendly means of control, and new research.

Program will take place at ‘The Inn’ at Hudson Gardens.
