The San Saba Garden Club was called to order on Tuesday, January 3rd, by Trish Fullerton, president, in the San Saba Civic Center. The Garden Club House is currently under renovation. Hostess Chair Marcie Cooper, along with Gail Eltgroth and Lynn McHenry, provided the refreshments.
The speaker was Mr. Carl Carter who presented information on local insects and their identification. Carl received his BS in Agricultural Education, as well as an MS in Plant Science, from Texas Tech University. He has worked with Extension Entomologists concerning all field crops, ornamentals, vegetable and fruit crops, and has coached state qualifying 4-H entomology teams.
Carl's presentation focused on two areas for pest control: lawn and garden, and fruit trees. He encouraged the audience to use biological products as an option when combating pests.
