Preparing for Next Spring: Plants to Attract Beneficial Insects
Dr. Ana Legrand, entomologist at the University of Connecticut, researches biological controls and plant-insect interactions. Her current work addresses biological control of white grubs and the use of flowers to attract insects in vegetable production. Join her as she discusses the conservation of beneficial insects such as predators, parasitoids, and pollinators that are part of an important practice that protects our environment. These insects provide tangible benefits to our environment. This presentation will cover steps in beneficial insect conservation, which include identification and provision of food and shelter through habitat diversification. Learn how to improve your garden and landscape in a new way.
