From 1990 to 1997, Dr. McDonald was Biological
Control Administrator and State Apiarist for the North
Carolina Department of Agriculture in Raleigh, NC.
In November of 1996, he and his wife of 14 years, Kate
Cahow, moved to Sugar Grove, NC, to realize their
shared dream of living and working in the mountains.
He started a company called Symbiont Biological Pest
Management. A symbiont is an organism that lives on
or in another organism, and both organisms benefit
from the association. Symbiont Biological Pest
Management Company specializes in utilizing naturally
occurring, beneficial insects to control pest insects
and weeds in a variety of situations, from farm to
home. It is the long term goal of Symbiont to assist
local farmers and landowners in utilizing beneficial
insects and other least-toxic control measures in
order to implement a more sustainable agriculture for
all of us.
The workshop is $20 and will take place at
The CCCC campus in Pittsboro.
