Understanding the New Insecticides
with Dr. Gail Langellotto, PhD

New insecticide chemistries challenge sustainable gardeners to stay abreast of emerging data on the persistence of these products in our gardens and of their impacts on target and non-target insects. There is a fair amount of rhetoric surrounding neonicotinoids, in the popular press and on social media. How do we cut through the noise to get to the facts?  

Dr. Gail Langellotto will present on the relatively novel insecticide, imdacloprid, and share the latest data on the impacts of lo-level chronic insecticide exposure on bees.

Gail Langellotto earned her Bachelor’s, Master’s and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Maryland. Currently, she is an Assistant Professor of Horticulture at OSU, where she also serves as the statewide coordinator of the OSU Extension Master Gardener Program. Her research and Extension program is diverse, and includes: 1) research on how gardening practices impact bees; 2) research on whether gardening increases vegetable consumption and/or science achievement; 3) Extension programs on pesticide reduction and alternative forms of pest control in gardens and 4) developing curricula to teach children healthy eating via gardening. She is also part of an international team of researchers who are looking at the potential impacts that growing genetically modified rice in Vietnam might have regional biodiversity.
