Celeste White did retire last year, but Hannah Wooten has taken her place in Orange County and has provided pesticide applicator training this year. Contact her at email@example.com or (407) 254-9200. Although offices are closed to the public, agents are still working. The CEU Day this year will be held online over Zoom.

Need to get my CEUs for limited pesticides applicator - 4 CEUs Was being held every January. However, this year it wasn't. At the time nobody seemed to know if when or where it would be held. With the change of Dr White this seems to have fallen between the cracks. I and several others have seeked out Alt that were feasible but those classes were for exams and other license types or way to far to travel. That said now it would need to be an online class. Please advise Sincerely Vince Witengier

Send your photos as attachments to e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. If they are pictures of turfgrass, they are usually difficult to address because all problems with turfgrass are brown spots. Include as much information as you can -- when did it start, how often do you water, when did you last fertilize, etc.

I'm having issues with my lawn and wondered if I could upload a couple of photos to see if someone might be able to provide some guidance
