In our IPM program at Florensis Ethiopia we use beneficial insects. For example we use Swirski Mite (a miniature spider). This insect is beneficial by the fact it feeds on various pathogenic insects. It’s a 'good' insect eating the 'bad' insects without harming the plants.
Applying IPM in our production process allows us to reduce the frequency of harmful crop protection agents use and to use "softer" products which are compatible with the beneficial insects.
