Go natural! Here's a publication with practical advice on enhancing the impact of beneficial organisms for pest management.

Biological control relies on the use of natural enemies to reduce or eliminate an insect pest. It can be a viable, environmentally friendly alternative to the use of insecticides. It may also be part of an integrated pest management program together with cultural and chemical controls.

  • Covers major pests of cabbage and other crucifers, and which organisms you can use to control them.
  • Includes a section on general natural enemies—predators, parasites, and pathogens that attack a wide variety of insects.
