Killing insects without chemicals

Can we use insect diseases to control pests without harming our environment.

Presented by Dr David Grzywacz, NRI

In this lecture David will discuss his research to harness natural insect diseases as a safe, environmentally acceptable pest control and the factors that impede or promote the aim to switch from chemical pesticides to biological alternatives. The talk will discuss the scientific and technological challenges as well as societal issues involved and how exciting research at the University is seeking to address these challenges and produce better alternatives to chemical insecticides.
