Allentown, PA. As our society gradually turns to more eco-friendly practices, one solution for pest control has been with us since the beginning of time. Biological control, using natural predators and insects to keeps pests in check, is gaining ground as the eco-friendly method of choice. But beyond the prolific and popular lady beetle, lies a host of not-so-well known insects and products that are surprisingly efficient at keeping pest populations in check. This episode looks at finding and promoting natural predators in the garden and also discusses incorporating natural bacteria and plant derivatives when a bug problem gets out of hand. Nothing beats the taste of fresh picked corn and Chef Nathan shows us how to use that corn to perfection in the kitchen.
