‘Getting the Good Bugs: How to Farm for Beneficial Insects and Biodiversity’

This presentation will focus on techniques to attract beneficial insects onto your farm.
This practice, commonly referred to as ‘Conservation Biological Control’, can be an effective way to
reduce pest pressure and improve crop production. Topics covered will include recognizing common
natural enemies and understanding how to manage your farm to attract and protect them. The
presentation will outline how to integrate habitat features, such as hedgerows, cover crops, and beetle
banks into your farming system.
