Speaker: Kelly Vance
Biological control programs can be challenging for some growers to implement and establish. With the number of available control agents growing every year, growers are faced with even more decisions to make regarding which predators, parasitoids or biopesticides to use for their crop pests. Even more critical is the need to identify the pest targeted from the beginning. In this session, Kelly will go over some common mistakes in pest identification, and why the predators you chose may not have worked. We will attempt to explain the preferred diet and climate of our most important control agents and when one’s performance is desired over another’s.
