CANCELLED: Webinar: The ABCs of Augmentative Biological Control
- This event has passed.
May 31 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm EDTFREE
Due to unforeseen circumstances, this webinar has been cancelled.
When pest populations climb, beneficial insects in the environment can have difficulty controlling the situation. They need backup and farmers often turn to augmentative biological control, or biocontrol. Releasing mass-reared insects like ladybeetles, minute pirate bug, lacewings, etc. is a great way to quickly tackle pest pressure but there are best management practices farmers should follow in order to increase their efficacy. This presentation will walk through how to choose a biocontrol and best practices for releasing them.
