When pest populations climb, beneficial insects in the environment can have difficulty controlling the situation. They need backup and farmers often turn to augmentative biological control, or biocontrol. Releasing mass-reared insects like ladybeetles, minute pirate bug, lacewings, etc. is a great way to quickly tackle pest pressure but there are best management practices farmers should follow in order to increase their efficacy. This webinar will walk through how to choose a biocontrol and best practices for releasing them.
