The Lugoff Garden Club welcomes Vicky Bertagnolli, the Consumer Horticulture Extension Agent/Master Gardener Coordinator for Aiken and Lexington counties, as guest speaker for the club’s Monday, May 18, 2015 at the home of John & Charlene Henderson in Kings Grant in Lugoff.

Bertagnolli has been with Clemson Extension Service since January 2008. She is a graduate of Auburn University with a B.S. degree in Wildlife Sciences and will soon complete her MS degree in Entomology, also from Auburn. Previously she worked as a research assistant for the Alabama Fire Ant Management Program, and her master’s thesis explored behavior of two species of ant-decapitating flies.

Bertagnolli will share her extensive knowledge of, and interesting encounters with, beneficial insects, their harmful cousins and what she describes as just "neat bugs" commonly found in the home landscape. Unlike many, Vicky says the chance to find and identify insects is one of her primary motivations for gardening.

The social hour begins at 6:30 p.m. and the program begins at 7 p.m.

Lugoff Garden Club meets the third Monday of the month from September thru May.
