Wednesday, July 26, 10:00 am – 11:00 am – Beneficial Bugs at Nasami


Tour the greenhouses at Nasami Farm in Whately, Massachusetts, on Wednesday, July 26 at 10 am, to see how common pests are successfully managed with biological controls—intentionally released insects, mites, nematodes, and micro-organisms—instead of pesticides. Scout for some of these beneficial bugs and their prey. Learn about the grisly fate of an aphid that encounters a predatory wasp. Bring a hand lens and sun protection. This New England Wild Flower Society excursion is sponsored by New England Wild Flower Society, led by Kate Stafford, and is $13 for NEWFS members, $16 for nonmembers.
