July 2017

Sunday, July 23rd, 2017, 9:00 am - 4:30 pm EDT
Conservation Biological Control: Short Course
MOFGA Common Ground Education Center, 294 Crosby Brook Road, Unity, ME

Learn a science-based strategy that seeks to integrate beneficial insects for natural 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 insecticides. This strategy is based upon ongoing research that continues to demonstrate a link between the conservation of natural habitat and reduced pest problems on farms, orchards, and gardens.

In response to growing interest in promoting beneficial insects for their pest control services on farms, the Xerces Society has authored the book Farming With Native Beneficial Insects and developed the Conservation Biological Control Short Course to educate farmers, agriculture employees, natural resource specialists, land managers, and conservation organization staff. Participants will receive the Xerces Society’s Conservation Biological Control Toolkit which includes habitat installation guidelines and other relevant publications, and the Xerces’ book, Farming with Native Beneficial Insects. The cost is $45.00/person. Bring a bag lunch. Visit this website for the workshop program and additional information:
