Resource:CABI’s new biocontrol video

Tuesday, February 7, 2017 - 9:55am

CABI has produced a new video which focuses on how we are using biological control, or biocontrol, to manage some of the worst invasive species that are affecting farmers’ livelihoods.

Biocontrol is a sustainable way of controlling invasive species. It uses very specific natural enemies of the invasive species, which pose no threat to the new ecosystem, and can represent a long-term and effective management option.

Shot in Malaysia, the video shows different problems farmers are experiencing with invasive species and highlights the environmental benefits of using biocontrol over chemical pesticides or herbicides.

The video explains the different biocontrol methods currently used by CABI to control invasive pests. More
