Our Work
Deke busy at work using the D-Vac model 24

The DI has provided intensive field training to farm managers and pest control advisors for a combined total of over 35 seasons with 23 individuals. Women and Spanish-speaking farm labor are priority groups for our training programs and we have had beginning success recruiting such trainees.

We have trained numerous educators and Master Gardener’s to guide farmers, gardeners and others to manage their environments minimizing toxic pesticides.

Our educational media include vacuum insect collectors and microscope projectors to offer exciting, transformative field days and seminars. Participants gain deeper understanding of how applied insect ecology works and are more able to practice and teach others biological pest control techniques.
