First Issue of 2017

Welcome to the 2017 edition of the Home, Yard, and Garden Pest Newsletter. We plan to publish 17 issues during the coming growing season. The first two issues will be two weeks apart as spring pest problems gear up. Through May and June, we will provide weekly issues, with issues every two weeks during July, August, and September. We will finish with an issue in mid-October that will include an index to the 2017 issues.

This is a newsletter for professionals. We will provide reports of the insects, diseases, and weeds on trees, shrubs, turf, and flowers as they occur. We will also attempt to predict pests that are likely to become problems in the upcoming week or two. We will provide management options appropriate for landscapers, arborists, golf course superintendents, and lawn care professionals.

We welcome suggestions concerning this newsletter as well as reports of unusual occurrences of disease, weed, and insect pests. (Phil Nixon)
