We have a farmer in the UK who recently tried this for aphid control in sugar beet (you can hear his experiences here: https://podcasts.apple.com/gb/podcast/bbro-december-beetcast-benefiting-from-beneficials/id1530066648?i=1000500931597). My primary concern was what the impact of mass releasing thousands of insect predators is on the surrounding insect community. Is there any research work on this from other species or cropping systems?
