Natural Enemies, Now a Division of Koppert Biological Systems, Inc.


With the explosion of the cannabis market, Koppert US has acquired Natural Enemies; the leader in chemical-free pest management in commercial cannabis cultivation.

Howell, MI. July 1, 2019– Koppert Biological Systems, Inc. is thrilled to announce it has gained a new partner in their ongoing partnership with nature; Natural Enemies. The Natural Enemies brand has built an exceptional reputation within the cannabis industry as a leader in chemical-free pest management. This reputation now supported by Koppert can ensure growers access to Koppert’s line of high-quality products as well as Koppert’s vast knowledge in horticulture.

“We are very excited and grateful that the Natural Enemies team has joined Koppert Biological Systems, Inc. Since 2014 Shane and his team have developed and grown the Natural Enemies name into one of the leaders in the industry. With the addition of the Koppert supply chain, our goal will be to take what they have developed and work jointly to expand it,” Ryan Hill, General Manager of Koppert USA.

Ryan Hill further detailed how this partnership encompasses one of Koppert’s core values.

“One of our core values is that ‘we work for growers’ and with this joint venture we are confident that we can provide our clients with even better service while at the same time keeping our focus on quality products.”

Natural Enemies was founded in 2014 when owner Shane Young saw the emerging cannabis market and the need to help educate cultivators on the effective use of BCA's (Biological Control Agents). Over the last four years the company blossomed into a leader in its field. Therefore, there was a natural merger as the two companies both strongly believe in using biocontrol products to reduce chemicals. The two companies also share the ambition in providing superior customer service and educating growers about the benefits and the patience needed for development of a successful IPM (integrated pest management) program.

Koppert Biological Systems is the leading provider of biological solutions in the horticulture and agriculture industries. In partnership with nature, we make agriculture safer, healthier and more productive. Headquartered in The Netherlands, Koppert-solutions are currently being successfully applied in more than 100 countries.
