Using Biological Control and Pesticides Together to Manage Greenhouse Insect and Mite Pests • August 27, 2020

Can it be done?

Please join us August 27 from 12-1 PM. Dr. Raymond Cloyd, Professor of Entomology and Extension Specialist, Kansas State University will discuss the fundamentals of integrating pesticides (insecticides, miticides, and fungicides) with biological control agents (parasitoids and predators) to mitigate problems with insect and mite pests. He will discuss the direct and indirect effects of pesticides on biological control agents and provide examples of situations where both pest management strategies may be integrated. Raymond will include information based on scientific research conducted in his laboratory at Kansas State University.


The webinar is free of charge for all attendees thanks to gracious financial support from the Massachusetts Flower Growers’ Association on the behalf of the greenhouse industry in Massachusetts.
