Biological Control Outreach Materials
UC Master Gardeners
We have developed a set of materials to help UC Master Gardeners educate other Master Gardeners and their local communities about biological control. Most of these materials were demonstrated at the 2012 and 2013 regional “Advanced IPM Training for UC Master Gardeners” workshops. The materials include a PowerPoint presentation, handouts, a poster, preserved natural enemy specimens, and tips for presenting your own biological control class.
View these documents online or download a PDF file. Your UC Master Gardener office should have paper copies of the Quick Tips. If not, ask your coordinator or office staff to order them from us.
Using the PowerPoint presentation

Requesting copies of the Natural Enemies poster
Each UCCE County Director should have several of the Natural Enemies posters for use throughout county programs, including Master Gardener programs. We hope the poster and other materials will stimulate Master Gardeners to do more to educate the public about beneficial insects.
If your Master Gardener program could use additional posters for a special education or outreach program related to biological control, we may be able to provide them. Please submit a proposal for how you plan to use them.
