Speaker

Beneficial insects, such as predators and parasitic wasps, provide control of numerous potential pests of crops. To achieve effective populations that can control pests, beneficial insects need undisturbed habitats such as non-farmed acres and unsprayed crops in agricultural landscapes. Join Dr. Contamagna as he illustrate the importance of different types of semi natural habitats and unsprayed crops in the control of soybean aphid by beneficial insects.
