Plant varieties that attract beneficial bugs to the garden. These bugs will help destroy harmful insects that damage your plants.
It’s an age-old struggle, whether you’re gardening in Florida, Maine or California – pests are a challenge to any growing landscape. Instead of using chemicals and pesticides in the garden, we’re here to offer a natural solution to your pest problem. Through prevention, the attraction of beneficial insects and natural remedies, the population of harmful pests hurting your precious plants will be reduced, giving you a stronger, healthier garden.
The easiest way to help keep harmful pests away from your plants is prevention, which means keeping a healthy, happy garden. The foundation of a healthy garden is healthy soil. We recommend using all natural compost, soil and mulch, going organic when possible. This helps give your plants the best chance of healthy growth. Another way to prevent harmful pests is to identify and pull out any plants that may be diseased or weak. Pulling and disposing of diseased plants away from the garden helps keep pests or disease from spreading to other plants nearby in your landscape. Minimize insect habitat by always keeping your garden weeded and clear of unnecessary debris (as much as possible – we know this can be hard). Plant diversity helps deter many harmful insects, especially aphids. If you’re planting vegetables, try rotating crops every year to help avoid re-infestation of pests on your crops. Watering early in the morning so foliage can dry out for most of the day helps keep fungus and other pests that prefer a moist environment out. If you’re gardening in any area that has been infected by pests, remember to disinfect your tools before moving on to another area, as well as properly disposing of clippings and cuttings.
Keep your garden weeded and debris-free to help prevent harmful insects from destroying your plants.
Beneficial insects, such as ladybugs, praying mantis and nematodes, are a gardeners’ best friend. These helpful insects prey on harmful insects and their larvae. The easiest way to attract beneficial insects to the garden is to plant flowering varieties that they love and need to survive. Plants such as Marigolds, Cilantro, Cosmos, California Poppy, and Sweet Alyssum should be planted throughout the garden to attract beneficial insects. (Tip: we carry a Beneficial Bug Wildflower Mix that contains a variety of these wildflowers). This ‘insect war’ can be one of the most successful, natural ways to help keep harmful pests from your garden.
If you’ve done everything you can to keep your garden healthy and attract beneficial insects to your property, but are still having a pest problem, we recommend trying a natural solution.
Few enjoy the smell of citronella or bug spray in the summer months, so why not plant varieties in your garden that help to naturally repel mosquitoes?

By keeping a clean, healthy garden and attracting beneficial insects, you’ll be on your way to a stronger, more vibrant garden without harmful chemicals or pesticides.
