This presentation was delivered at the Entomological Society of America in Denver, Colorado (November 5, 2017). Content includes most updated population dynamics data and insecticidal control data.
Presentation delivered on October 31st and November 1st to greenhouse vegetable growers. Aimed specifically for whitefly, aphid, and twospotted spider mite management using biological control and a quick look at insecticide compatibility resources.
Presentation delivered through webinar as a part of the “All Bugs Good and Bad Webinar” series. This presentation gives some basic biological of aphids, scale insects and whiteflies and how to find resources to manage them.
This presentation, delivered both for the East Texas Beekeepers Association and at the Overton Field day (2015), gives some components to consider when looking at the impact of neonics on pollinators. The general public is very quick to call upon a ban on neonics for killing our bees – but the situation is really not that simple. In this presentation, I try to shed light on both sides of the argument that neonics are responsible for pollinator population decline.
A presentation delivered by Dr. David Smitley from Michigan State University (Department of Entomology) on “Growing Flowering Plants that are Safe for Pollinators in the Yard and Garden” presented at the 19th Annual Ornamental Workshop on Diseases and Insects. The presentation focuses primarily on neonicotinoids, which have received a lot of media and public attention recently. (Sharing with permission from Dr. Smitley).
