Our guest speaker will be Lance S. Osborne speaking on Chili Thrips

Lance Osborne received his Ph.D in Entomology from the University of California. He is currently a professor of entomology at University of Florida, spending 50% of his time in research and the balance in teaching, administration, and extension; he is also Associate Center Director, UF, Mid-Florida Research and Education Center. Dr. Osborne’s work included managing whiteflies, mites, and other destructive pests through biological intervention reducing the need for traditional pesticides. His experience and advice for pest control in our gardens will be invaluable!
