Slugs and Worms and Aphids, Oh my!

Part of living in Maine's paradise in the spring and summer months is sharing our gardens with bugs and insects. For over 100 years, the University of Maine Extension has researched and publicized information regarding the good and the bad wee besties that arrived in Pine Tree State for a holiday. 


As gardeners, we are committed to healthy, sustainable gardening that protects our pollinators but addresses our uninvited guests. Here is where you will find advice from seasoned garden warriors and special articles that may help our readers to live with insects.

Pest Identification and Management for people in Maine. The intent of these pages is to help people in Maine identify pests (and other curious critters) that are found in and around the home and garden, and to provide information on how to control them, if necessary. Information you can use, research you can trust.
