Current Pest and Plant Disease Issues in NC
Featured Speakers: Matt Bertone (left), Extension Associate, and Mike Munster (right), Plant Disease Diagnostician – NC State University Entomology and Plant Pathology
Ryan will focus on providing real-world IPM solutions for your lawn and landscape. Developing a pest management strategy requires planning, persistence, and, above all, knowledge of lawn and landscape plants. It also requires an understanding of the pests, including identification of the pest and the damage it causes, its life cycle, environmental or cultural conditions that favor its development, and methods of control.
Featured Speaker: Mark Hoffman, Small Fruits Extension Specialist, NC State University Dept. of Horticultural Science

First found in eastern Pennsylvania in 2014, spotted lanternfly (Lycorma delicatula) is a new invasive insect pest that has now spread to New York, Delaware, and Virginia. While it has not yet been found in North Carolina, it is believed to be heading our way and early detection will be critical in stopping its spread and the devastating effect it could have on home landscapes, businesses and agricultural crops, particularly grapevines, fruit trees, and a wide range of hardwood trees. Whitney Swink, Regulatory Entomologist, Joy Goforth, Plant Pest Administrator, and Allison Ballantyne, Gypsy Moth Program Manager, N.C. Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services Plant Industry Division, join us to share information about this pest, including where it is currently found and how to identify all stages of its life cycle. In addition, Mike Munster, Plant Disease Diagnostician with the NC State University Plant Disease and Insect Clinic, will share updates on current plant disease issues found in North Carolina.
Bridget will provide an overview of State and Federal Noxious weed programs in North Carolina – including definitions of “Noxious” vs. “Invasive”, rules and regulations governing movement of weeds in the state, and an update on several noxious weeds that were once sold in the Green Industry and are now present in small populations in NC.
Featured Speaker: Barb Fair, Landscape Extension Specialist and Associate Professor, NC State University Dept. of Horticultural Science
How do you prepare for the worst? With trees it takes a lot of prep work many years ahead of the storms, starting with selecting the right tree and planting it correctly in a good location. Then, it is all about maintenance. It’s never too early to start training young trees and data shows well-trained trees perform better when it comes to storms. Since storms will always be a part of our lives here in the south, then we really need to start now! In this presentation you will learn tips to help your trees survive the storms we know will keep coming.
