Training Opportunity

Farming with Beneficial Insects for Pest Control:
Conservation Biological Control Short Course
June 26th, 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM
Greenwood, SC

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 Pollinator Conservation Toolkit which includes Xerces' book, Farming With Native Beneficial Insects, as well as habitat management guidelines and relevant USDA-NRCS and extension publications.
