A webinar from MSU AgBioResearch entomologist Matthew Grieshop and MSU Entomology graduate student Joe Tourtois on using invertebrates to improve farms, gardens and greenhouses. The session will cover three species: Dalotia coriarta, a predatory beetle, entomopathogenic neamtodes and black soldier flies. Each species is easily reared and can be used to recycle nutrients and control soil-dwelling pests. Participants will learn about the uses of each species, as well as the materials and environmental conditions to begin utilizing them.
