Episode 495 Biological Pests and Allies

Bruce Conn is a professor of One Health at Berry College and and invertebrate biologist with special interests in insects and bivalve mollusks, so we talk about various mosquito-borne diseases and the services provided by oysters and clams to clean sea water. Antibiotics have been used to fatten cattle (apparently it takes a lot of energy for an organism to fight off pathogens, and when the antibiotics help out, its saves cattle energy and they put on weight!) the manure has components that probably harm all kinds of bacteria, friendly and not. Bacteria can be friend or foe, and so can earthworms. For the video, audio podcast, transcript and sometimes) comments: https://tosavetheworld.ca/episode-495-biological-pests-and-allies.
