Bagrada Bug Update

Hello PCG Garden Members,

With the warmer weather, we can expect the dreaded Bagrada Bug to be looking for gardens to make a home out of. Let’s all be proactive and remove all mustard green plants, brassica, cruciferous plants from our plots no later than May 31st.

Plants in this family are as follows:

  • broccoli
  • cauliflower
  • kale
  • sweet alyssum

For more information, you can read this pest note from the UC IPM.
