Chainsaw Safety Tips by Glen Rains, UGA Safety Extension Specialist, identifies the parts of a chainsaw and reviews proper and safe operation. Use this publication to train new workers or as a review for seasoned workers.
Deer Tolerant Ornamental Plants is authored by Gary Wade, Extension Horticulturist and Michael T. Mengak, Wildlife Specialist, Warnell School of Forestry and Natural Resources. Deer love to feed on landscape plants. There are no repellants that are completely effective. Though there is no perfectly deer resistant plant, this publication lists plants that deer occasionally feed on (these plants need protection) and those plants deer rarely browse.
The 2010 Turfgrass Pest Control Recommendations for Professionals has returned from the printer. Again the Georgia Turfgrass Association has footed the bill for publishing these pesticide recommendations. Contact your local Extension Office for a printed copy. You can also find this publication online or download the entire document at www.GeorgiaTurf.com.
Africanized Honey Bees have received a good bit of press as they move towards Georgia. Africanized honey bees look almost exactly like traditional honey bees, but they are more aggressive in defending their nests. Dr. Keith Delaplane (Professor of Entomology at UGA) has authored a publication on Africanized Honey Bees. In areas where these bees are currently present, residents have learned to manage them. This publication gives information on identifying and managing these bees. This information is important to landscapers and those working outside in case they encounter the Africanized honey bee.
