The Cambrian

Beetles are subject of horticulturalist’s talk

What’s happening to your trees during the drought? If you’re seeing beetles there, and you don’t know, for instance, if they’re red turpentine beetles or engraver beetles, or what difference it makes, Paul Williams, manager of Orkin Horticultural Services, formerly Nordella’s (in Cambria), has the answers.

Williams will be a guest speaker at the Cambria Forest Committee meeting that starts at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 8, at Rabobank, 1070 Main St. Williams will talk about the insects, fungus and diseases that are attacking local trees during the drought.
