MGAA: Insect Pests and Their Natural Enemies
March 17, 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Insect pests can cause havoc on farmers crops and urban gardens. In the past the common approach has been to reach for insecticides but increasingly both farmers and urban gardeners have been partnering with mother nature to help with control. Natural enemies of insects can be our friends but how effective are they and how do we work with them? Lets take a tour of the world of natural enemies and discover the possibilities.
This session will be recorded and available to ticket holders for 1 week following the presenation.
