Matthew Gates of PESTAPALOOZA is back on GrowCast! Today he joins the program to talk about biological controls- specifically bio control sprays. Gates shares his thoughts on biocontrols in general, and talks about how we need to take a specific approach to selection and application of these products. He talks about pest killing fungi, and how different species tend to operate. Gates goes on to extrapolate on a few of the most common biocontrol sprays, including BTI, BTK, spinosad, and more.
