Description:  In forests native beneficial insects control pest insects. Learn about Integrated Pest Management (IPM) and how to conserve beneficial insects. IPM can be used to manage trees, landscapes, turf, and greenhouse pests. The IPM  principles are the same, but the pests are different.

  • Learn how to identify beneficial insects in 20 different families.
  • Learn how to modify the environment to increase the number of beneficial insects. 
  • Discuss ways to advertise IPM programs to decrease insecticide use and increase safety.
  • Learn about the issue of bee friendly plants free of systemic insecticides and whether it is important.
