Protecting Boxwoods against Blight and the Box Tree Moth
Tuesday, March 5th, 2024 | 2-330pm
Boxwood blight is a fungal disease that first appeared in the U.S. in 2011. It affects all types of boxwoods. Once the fungus is present, its symptoms are only reduced by pesticides. There is no treatment to cure boxwood blight; however, there are preventive treatments. Speakers during this free webinar will review how to identify this disease and the steps to take to prevent the blight from spreading to other boxwoods. Additionally, this webinar will discuss the box tree moth, another significant pest of boxwoods. Experts will describe the importance of quarantines, as well as the lures, traps, and other integrated pest management-based controls for this pest.
