Beneficial Insects

Good bugs for your garden!

What’s an organic gardener to do with pests in your vegetable garden or yard? Turn to good bugs to get rid of bad bugs.

Currently, we’ve got ladybugs — great for eating pesky aphids — praying mantis eggs and beneficial nematodes that attack pests that attack plants in areas such as root zones, tree galleries, thatch of lawns and bark cracks. They will also work on fleas and insects that bore into wood, trees, and shrubs.

Come on in and get your live bugs!
