Climate Futures: The Farm

Earth Week 2022 with Minecraft: Education Edition

Guest Speaker: Parabug

How do you control pests in your garden or plants?  Parabug uses drones to control pests with good bugs! Invented in 2014 by a strawberry farmer, Parabug has been used to apply dozens of different types of “good bugs” to help farmers in many different crops. These beneficial insects are just one part of what farmers are doing to develop integrated pest management systems.  Inside the lesson, Parabug will share a few of their favourite fruits and vegetables, their common pests, plus the good bugs and the drones we use to apply them.
