Non-chemical methods for managing Colorado Potato Beetles

For the past two years, we've been working with farmers at Clover Bee Farm, Shepherd Moon Farm, and Big River Farms to test the viability of non-chemical methods for managing Colorado Potato Beetles. Various strategies are mentioned in Extension publications as being effective, but we wanted to know how practical these strategies actually are. 

We interviewed the farmers who participated in the trial, and they shared their thoughts in a video. Check out the video here!

Full results for the trial are reported in the 2021 and 2022 (forthcoming) Greenbooks.
