Shimon Steinberg: Natural pest control ... using bugs!

In What Ways Can We Use the Good Bugs?

Simon Steinberg's video highlights the variety of pest control options to synthetic chemicals.  Steinberg promotes biological pest control using  mass production of the pests natural enemies. Promoters of agroecology may take issue with his expanding the biocontrol industry through mass production (rather than working with ecosystems to provide habitat for those natural enemies and beneficial insects) but it shows the growing acceptance and commercial viability of alternatives to sythetic chemicals.
