The University of California (UC) Statewide Integrated Pest Management Program is now providing a new online course on how to identify, monitor and manage citrus thrips. This course was developed by Dr. Beth Grafton-Cardwell and Dr. Joe Morse from the Department of Entomology at UC Riverside and Dr. Bodil Cass from the Department of Entomology at UC Davis. This is a great learning opportunity for citrus growers and pest management professionals to earn one hour of "Other" continuing education units approved by the California Department of Pesticide Regulation.
