If you are a gardener like me then you don’t like the idea of using chemicals in your garden to control pesky garden insects. Instead you would rather use an all natural means of controlling unwanted garden insects just like mother nature intended.
You are in luck because there are a few garden pest solutions available to you.
Praying Mantises are a top competitor because they primarily stay where you put them and they guard your garden from free loading insects who eat your prize vegetables. They are easy to establish in your garden simply by searching the internet for Praying Mantis Eggs. You will find a few sites that specialize in beneficial garden bugs and of course Praying Mantis for sale.
Another great choice are Green Lacewings. These insects are also easy to raise simply by purchasing green lacewing eggs, putting them in your garden and wait for them to hatch. Once born these insects will go to work ridding your garden of aphids, thrips and other soft bodied insects. Each green lacewing larvae are able to eat up to 600 aphids in their larvae stage! They are affectionately called aphid lions because of their big appetite for aphids.
Another tried and true beneficial bug and almost everyone’s favorite would be the ladybug. Ladybugs are voracious consumers of aphids and work tirelessly around the clock to guard your garden from being eaten up by harmful garden insects. Ladybugs have been a famous beneficial insect for the past 20 years!
