Learn insect identification along with control and management options. Help reduce reliance on agricultural pesticides, improve your pest management and play a part in developing a sustainable future in your agricultural practice, home garden or vegetable patch.

Presenter Anthony Rice (PhD) specialises in insect ecology which enables him to bring a different perspective to pest management. Anthony gained a PhD from the School of Agricultural Science, University of Tasmania in 2005, where he specialised in the reproductive ecology of parasitoids in collaboration with CSIRO and the CRC for Sustainable Production Forestry. In 2005, he took up a position in the Northern Australia Quarantine Strategy as Senior Entomologist, where for nearly 10 years he delivered domestic and international surveillance for insect pests of National agricultural significance and held oversight of the Torres Strait Fruit Fly Monitoring network. Ant started his own IPM (Integrated Pest Management) consultancy in 2015 and moved to Stanthorpe in the Granite Belt to continue working in horticulture, servicing growers in South East Queensland and Northern New South Wales. Being able to apply what he has learnt over the years in a very practical way, "to improve on-farm pest management and maximise marketable produce gives Anthony great personal satisfaction.”

Attendees are encouraged to bring specimens or images for identification and ‘show and tell’ session. PLEASE NOTE -Specimens MUST be frozen in a plastic bag beforehand and will be disposed of on the day.
