Burleigh SCD Menoken Farm
Join Sarah Hamilton-Buxton, Farm Bill Pollinator Conservation Planner with the Xerces Society, to learn about supporting beneficial insects that provide pest control in this full day short course. Conservation biological control is a science based pest management strategy that seeks to encourage beneficial insects back into cropping & grazing systems for natural pest control, ultimately rewarding farmers with economically-viable pest management systems. Sarah will give an overview of conservation biological control and beneficial predators and parasitoids that attack insect pests. Participants will learn how common farm practices can impact beneficial in-sects and how to assess and create farm habitat for beneficial insects.
