NSECTS ON THE FARM
Sunday, August 13 · 1-6pm
Insects are important players on the farm – though often thought of as pests and parasites, insects are active in soil health, as pollinators, and even as pest control. Understanding insects in the context of your whole farm ecosystem will help you make informed decisions. Learn insect identification in the field and best practices from MSU Extension Educator Erin Lizotte on integrated pest management (IPM), and hear from Pollinator Project coordinator Meghan Milbrath and MSU Extension’s Dr. Duke Elsner on supporting native pollinators, including bees and monarchs.
