A healthy population of beneficial insects can eliminate the need for dangerous pesticides. Say goodbye to common pests like spider mites, aphids, and leafhoppers just by planting a beautiful garden full of the right flowers and herbs!

At first it might seem counterintuitive to want bugs in your landscape, but insects are good for your garden–especially the helpful ones that eat the pests feeding on your favorite plants.

  • All about beneficials-who they are, how they work, and what they eat
  • Beneficial bug profiles
  • Gardening for bugs
  • Plant profiles-the best plants for beneficials
  • A guide to designing for the bugs
