Using Beneficial Insects from Koppert Biological Systems

One of the best ways to control pests organically and to maintain a healthy garden is through the use of beneficial predatory insects.

Last summer, I decided to enlist the help of Koppert Biological Systems to assess my greenhouses and gardens, and to create a treatment program that would keep some of the more common pests away. In December, we received our first shipment of beneficial insects - some are sprinkled over the crops, some are released through cards or small sachets hung on branches and strong stems, and others simply crawl their way out of specially designed cardboard boxes. It is a very interesting process that keeps bad bugs at bay without the use of harmful chemicals.
