Integrated Pest Management, a talk by Frank Niccoli 
Friday, May 05, 2023 07:00pm

To spray, or not to spray, that is the question:
Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous insects,
Or to take arms against a sea of aphids
And by spraying, end them.

The bard asks the same questions we ponder regarding pesticide use. Did you know that there is a method of pest control that is much safer for you and the environment? Join Frank Niccoli for two tantalizing hours to learn about Integrated Pest Management.

Frank Niccoli has been a gardener for over 55 years. He has written the curriculum and teaches numerous classes at Foothill College. His classes include: Ground Cover and Vines, Shrubs, California Natives, Landscape Lighting, Integrated Pest Management, Sustainable Integrated Pest Management and Veggie Gardens.

Frank is the past president of the founding chapter of the California Landscape Contractors Association. He teaches from the perspective of a contractor who has been in the business for 32 years and with a passion for sustainability and environmental stewardship.

Directions to the Los Altos Library, for both talks: From Foothill Expy., travel 1⁄2 mile on San Antonio Rd. towards the Bay, cross Hillview and turn right into the driveway; library is on the left. From El Camino, travel towards the hills on San Antonio Rd., cross Edith and turn left into the unmarked driveway just before Hillview. The sign on San Antonio Rd. reads “Civic Center, Library and History Museum.” Enter through the lobby of the main entrance.

Location Los Altos Library, Orchard Room, 13 So. San Antonio Road, Los Altos
