Find the latest information on managing pests of vegetable, fruit tree, and ornamental plants, or household pests. New content was drawn from the UC Guide to Solving Garden and Landscape Problems, formerly only available in CD-ROM format.

More than 120 plant species are covered. Emphasis is on least-toxic management methods that protect health and the environment. The information allows users to make quick, informed management decisions while decreasing pesticide use. The database is continually updated, and additional plants and pests will be added over the next year.
