Integrated Pest Management for Farm and Garden

November 15, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Free

Managing pests holistically on farms and in gardens.

Dr Paul Horne is an entomologist who, since 1996, has run his own company, IPM Technologies, specialising in integrated pest management (IPM) and the biological control of insect pests. His work regularly takes him to all states of Australia and around the world and he has authored a number of books and papers on the subject. In this one hour webinar, Paul will explore;

  • Integrated Pest Management – What is it? Am I doing it? If not, how can I and why should I?
  • Beneficial insects – There are a range of ecosystem services provided by insects for free. Pollination is just one of them. Learn about some others.
  • What is the difference between a predator and a parasite? How can I manage them?
  • What are biological and cultural controls? How to use them to reduce the need for chemical controls.
  • How can I learn more?
