This two-day course will bring you up-to-date on the latest practices and techniques for introducing beneficial and predatory insects and mites to your greenhouse or high tunnel in order to reduce problems and numbers of detrimental insects to your plants.

While the focus will be on enclosed culture such as greenhouses and high tunnels, several topics will include information on outdoor usage. With harmful insect populations becoming increasingly challenging to control, using both traditional and organic pesticides, introducing and using beneficial insects, is a rapidly expanding field.
