Olbrich’s production greenhouse staff grow many spring annuals displayed in the show. They use an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) system that involves beneficial insects, such as Amblyseius cucumeris, a predatory mite. Staff sprinkle the mite-sawdust mixture on the foliage of the plants and the mites feed on immature thrips. These beneficial insects, coupled with preventive cultural practices and close monitoring, allow us to keep our homegrown Spring Show flowers synthetic pesticide-free!
