Crepemyrtle Bark Scale Management Webinars

Since 2014 Mengmeng Gu's group at Texas A&M has made significant progress on managing crapemyrtle bark scale (CMBS) research. CMBS has been confirmed in all Southeastern states except Florida and as far north as Kansas and Washington. It has significantly affected landscape and aesthetic value of crapemyrtle plants. They are offering a 4-part webinar series focusing on systematic crapemyrtle bark scale CMBS management strategies. Please join in for all parts of the webinars and promote these webinars to your colleagues.  You must register.
