Farming with Beneficial Insects for Pest Control: Conservation Biological Control Short Course

Wooster, OH 

Tuesday, May 23, 2017
9:00am-4:00pm

In this full-day Conservation Biological Control short course, learn about supporting beneficial insects that provide pest control. 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. Participants will learn how common farm practices can impact beneficial insects and how to assess and create farm habitat for beneficial insects.

Registration is $45 per person.
Registrants will receive the Xerces Society's Conservation Toolkit which includes Xerces' book, Farming With Native Beneficial Insects, as well as habitat management guidelines and relevant USDA-NRCS and extension publications.

Lunch is not included. Please plan on bringing a sack lunch with you to the course.
