Beneficial insects are a natural army of pest control allies and it is important to provide them with suitable living conditions if you expect their help. In order to reproduce, beneficial insects need nectar and pollen. If they do not find these in your field (and they are very particular about which flowers they want), they will leave and may not return.

We pioneered these seed mixes to create a beneficial insect habitat. We designed our mix to include plants that are proven hosts to specific wild as well as introduced beneficials, such as predatory mites and wasps, ladybugs, lacewings, syrphids, tachnids, predacious beetles and many more.

Good Bug Blend has been field-proven for over a decade in large and small scale growing areas. Since the mix blooms nearly year round, Good Bug Blend should be planted in areas which can go a little wild, such as field borders, ditchbanks, fence rows, etc.

  • Generally, you need to plant only 1-5% of your land with this mix for good results.
  • Drill or broadcast seed at 10-15 lb/acre .5 lb/1,000 sq ft in any but the coldest months of the year.
  • Blooms begin 45-90 days after planting and will continue for years.
  • Average height is 18" (but some plants can get as high as 6' depending on soil fertility, available moisture, or competition)

Contains the following seeds: Crimson Clover, Red Clover, Nungarin Subclover, Yellow Sweet Clover, Hykon Rose Clover, White Clover, Semi & Non Dormant Alfalfa, Coriander, Daikon Radish, Dill, Red Radish, Carrot, Calendula, California Buckwheat, Baby's Breath, Sweet Alyssum, White Yarrow, Caraway, Celery, Fennel, and Parsley.

NOTE to Certified Organic Growers: All our cover crop seed is untreated, non-GMO seed. The seed in this Good Bug Blend is conventional seed, but the legumes in the mix are coated with Nitro-Coat Organic, which is an OMRI listed coating. This coating uses all organic ingredients: the proper rhizobacteria, a Calcium Carbonate coating that is naturally water absorbing to speed seed germination, and an OMRI listed organic adhesive.

Excellent ground cover for an emerging food forest

I have told every Permaculture designer that I know that this mix is, by far, the best solution for providing groundcover in an emerging food forest. This mix made things super simple: dig the swells on Contor, plant the variety of trees and support species that I wanted and fill in all of the spaces with this mix. The results have been remarkable!

I HATE ants

I have a massive hatred of ants. In my last house I had a problem with ants getting into my house. I decided to try planting a hedgerow instead of spraying. I never had a problem with ants after planting! One tip I would give is to put it on the side of the house instead of on display like I did. To the untrained eye it looks like a weed patch. We had to cut it down and plant prettier stuff when we were selling. Then I had a slight ant problem again. Our new house has an ant problem so I'll be planting this on both sides of my house.

Fast growing beautiful cover crop

It was amazing I ordered around 5 pounds and seeded a large area with it. My plants seem to be loving it and it looks amazing I just ordered some pray Mantis so I'm going to see how there reaction is to these beneficial plants.

It definitely works

Planted this last year in a small 20x50 area for chicken forage and weed control. It looks nice and smells nice, and tolerates occasional mowing. Horses next door love me now, thanks to the wild carrots. This year, my nearby fruit trees are *covered* in ladybugs. I call that a win-win.

Love Love Love this good bug mix!

I planted this on my side yard and it completely covered the ground with amazingly beautiful plants and flowers that bloomed the entire season and brought lots of honey bees in for the clovers! I have since ordered it in bulk! I highly recommend this as an excellent cover crop for beneficials and beauty!
