UM Knowledge Exchange – Insects: Friends and Foes

On Wednesday April 24, 2024, join the UM Knowledge Exchange for an exploration of efforts to address the declining population of bees and other beneficial insects, along with recent advances in controlling pests like mosquitoes. The panel of Manitoba experts will explore the complex relationship between people and insects with the goal of preserving the delicate balance in our ecosystems and agriculture.

UM Knowledge Exchange is an important opportunity for UM researchers to share emerging knowledge with members of the public and the wider UM community. UM Knowledge Exchange is hosted by the Associate Vice-President Research, with support from the UM Learning for Life Network.

Many insects provide valuable services such as pollination, biological control, decomposition and forming vital links in food webs, while others cause devastation and misery by eating crops, affecting livestock and spreading disease. Join our expert panel this spring to learn how you can protect yourself from pests while attracting pollinators and the myriad of other beneficial insects in our yards and farms.
