Winter is a great time to prepare for the upcoming gardening season, fortifying yourself with the best information on pests and diseases that may attack your plants. IPM (Integrated Pest Management) was born out of the need to keep plants healthier without relying on pesticides. So, chemicals were replaced with safer management practices. IPAs (India Pale Ales) were born out of the brewer’s need to keep beer fresher on its long haul from England to India. So, hops were added to preserve the beer. Mike Leventry, a plant health care specialist, presents the safest ways for you to manage pests in your yard as you sample some of the area’s freshest IPAs.
