Most up-to-date half-day Master Gardener Entomology Training Handouts, 4 slides per page. A total of three different presentations. The PDFs are rather large (up to 35MB), so download may take a little while depending on download speed. Two of the presentations were rather large, so they have been split into two separate parts.
