"From the Ted Talk by Shimon Steinberg: Natural pest control ... using bugs!"

Unscramble the Blue Letters

What we do is actually this. In Northeast Israel, in Kibbutz Sde Eliyahu, there is a ftailciy that mass-produces those nuraatl enemies. In other words, what we do there is amplify the natural control, or the bialoicogl control phenomenon. And in 30,000 square meters of state-of-the-art greenhouses, there, we are mass-producing those predatory mites, those minute pirate bugs, those parasitic wasps, etc. Many different parts. By the way, they have a very nice landscape — you see the Jordanian mionutans on the one hand, and the Jordan Valley on the other hand, and a good, mild winter and a nice, hot summer, which is an excellent condition to mass-produce those creatures. And by the way, mass-production — it is not genetic mnuaatlpioin. There are no GMOs — genetically modified osigmrans — whatsoever. We take them from nature, and the only thing that we do is give them the oitmapl conditions, under the greenhouses or in the cltmiae rooms, in order to pilrarfoete, multiply and reproduce. And that's what we get.

Original Text

What we do is actually this. In Northeast Israel, in Kibbutz Sde Eliyahu, there is a facility that mass-produces those natural enemies. In other words, what we do there is amplify the natural control, or the biological control phenomenon. And in 30,000 square meters of state-of-the-art greenhouses, there, we are mass-producing those predatory mites, those minute pirate bugs, those parasitic wasps, etc. Many different parts. By the way, they have a very nice landscape — you see the Jordanian Mountains on the one hand, and the Jordan Valley on the other hand, and a good, mild winter and a nice, hot summer, which is an excellent condition to mass-produce those creatures. And by the way, mass-production — it is not genetic manipulation. There are no GMOs — genetically modified organisms — whatsoever. We take them from nature, and the only thing that we do is give them the optimal conditions, under the greenhouses or in the climate rooms, in order to proliferate, multiply and reproduce. And that's what we get.
