Good bugs, bad garden bugs lecture Monday in Tyler library


Join the Tyler Public Library for the third class in a gardening series led by various local experts. 

On Monday Smith County Master Gardner Anne Brown will discuss good and bad garden bugs and how to tell the difference between them. 

There is no charge or registration required for this class. The lectures begin at 10:30 a.m. in the Library's Taylor Auditorium and will last about an hour.

Garden enthusiasts work so hard making their gardens lovely by selecting the right plants, using the correct fertilizer and watering at appropriate intervals. 

When it comes to bugs, however, some gardeners indiscriminately kill all of them. This class will teach that not all bugs are destructive. Some bugs actually are a big help and can keep bad bugs away. 

Please join the library for a discussion on this topic followed by a question and answer session. 

Upcoming classes in the series include:

- April 11 – "Where is the Herb Pot? Where is the Answer?" by Smith County Master Gardner Mack Humphrey

- April 18 – "A-Z's of Vegetable Gardening " by Smith County Master Gardner Ed McGee
