Farming with Native Beneficial Insects – Mission, TX
September 26th, 2018
9:00 AM – 4:00 PM
National Butterfly Center
Conservation biological control is a science-based pest management strategy that seeks to integrate beneficial insects back into cropping systems for natural pest control, ultimately reducing and in some cases eliminating the need for pesticides. Join Ray Moranz, Grazing Lands Pollinator Ecologist at the Xerces Society, as he overviews conservation biological control and beneficial predators and parasitoids that attack insect pests. Participants will learn how common farm practices can impact beneficial insects and how to assess and create farm habitat for beneficial insects.
