Lawn and garden pests include insects, mites, nematodes, diseases, weeds, vertebrates, and mollusks. Basically, anything that injures our garden plants or annoys us as gardeners can be considered a pest. How we attempt to control those pests can impact our environment, our wallet, and our own personal safety.

The resources below are to assist gardeners in making wise choices on how to best manage landscape pests.
