This Picture Shows You How to Defeat Garden Pests With the Help of Other Insects.
When it comes to gardening, not all insects are bad. For a natural solution to pest control, consider saluting beneficial insects or one of the other DIY pest control methods in this infographic.
This graphic from First Choice Environmental shows some of the insects that destroy your garden and the “good” insects that feed on these garden pests. You can order them or, as shown in the picture, use insects to bait beneficial insects. The graph also provides some details on the use of cover rows and diatomaceous earth. (There is also a beneficial insect poster with pictures of other good insects from the University of California for further reading.)
The information here may be old news for seasoned gardeners, but for unlucky newbies like me, it’s good to know.
