Our gardens and landscapes are home to many beneficial organisms besides the pollinators we know and love. Some of these lesser-known organisms have vital roles in healthy garden ecosystems, providing organic waste reduction and natural pest control services. Join Matt Bertone, director and entomologist for the NC State Plant Disease and Insect Clinic, as he shares his expertise and teaches us how to encourage these important helpers in our gardens.
Matt Bertone is an entomologist with expertise in arthropod and other animal identification. He is also a biodiversity expert and avid photographer.
