Beneficial Bugs

Beneficial Bugs

A few people have posted asking how to control pests without spraying pesticides on their plants that might harm pets/kids/more desirable wildlife. I've just released 2,000 ladybugs into my roses (which are beset by aphids every year) and planted 3 eggcases of praying mantis eggs. Positive review for www.planetnatural.com, which provided said garden warriors promptly with free shipping. I'll let you know whether they eat all the aphids or immediately fly away. :)
