South Park learns about pest management


By BYCOOP admin - Posted on 05 April 2013

Intermediate classes learn about pollination, pest management some tips on how to identify good bugs and bad bugs in their school neighbourhood farms

That tutorial session seems to me very educative for students. It's important to learn difference between good and bad bugs. I think type of classes will really help students identify good pests for farming. Thanks.

I use a product called "corys" it is a black liquid and although I know it is not an organic treatment, if you want to get rid of slugs, it works great.

I have always been a fan of the bee trap, especially for baby slugs. Basically cover a small dish partially buried in the soil. Pour a a quarter inch of beer into the dish and cover with tin foil or newspaper. They are attracted to the yeast and basically drown. You can also try a mixture of yeast and water.

Already there seems to be a bunch of slugs in my garden. Is there a way to get to them while they are young and small?

That was a great session yesterday. The kids are excited about growing in their school neighbourhood farm. There were some good observations and the kids learned a little about good bugs and bad bugs. Next week they are planting seed.
