What are we doing?
We are squishing Colorado Potato Beetles!
Integrated pest management, or IPM, is a process you can use to solve pest problems while minimizing risks to people and the environment. IPM can be used to manage all kinds of pests anywhere—in urban, agricultural, and wildland or natural areas.
So that is why we squish, no dangerous insecticides used. Insects can build up immensities to insecticides and create super bugs. But as I know none have build up an immunity to Squish! Everyday we are out there squishing bugs and eggs to break there cycle of life.
This way we have healthy food for our CSA Members, Farmers’ Markets and restaurants
