 Dr. Michael J. Raupp has recently retired from his role as  an Emeritus Professor of Entomology at the University of Maryland. He was also a Fellow of the Entomological Society of America.

In light of concerns about risks to beneficial insects including pollinators and natural enemies, jurisdictions around the country are placing new restrictions on several insecticides commonly used by the green industries. Questions have arisen regarding alternative approaches to managing key insect and mite pests. This presentation will review EPAs Reduced Risk Pesticides, those listed by the Organic Materials Review Institute, and biologically based alternatives to conventional insecticides. By conserving and protecting beneficial insects, we strive to increase sustainability of managed landscapes.
