Ladybird eating Aphid

This year we are taking our talk on biological organic pest controls on the road.

We use these in our own organic plant nursery for pest control and find them effective. The talk covers the use of the most common controls that we sell. These are

  • Nematodes to control slugs,
  • Various predators to tackle red spider mite
  • Encarsia wasps to combat white fly
  • Cryptolaemus (Australian ladybird) to tackle mealy bug
  • Ladybirds and Lacewings to eat aphids.

We are talking at various horticultural societies over the next 6 months. If you live near I’m sure you would be able to attend as a guest. Contact us and we’ll put you in touch with the secretary at the club.
