Why attract insects to the garden?
Beneficial insects are the gardener’s best friend.
Ladybirds - Ladybirds are regarded as beneficial to the garden as they eat a lot of insects that damage plants, such as aphids, scale insects and thrips.
Lacewings - Lacewings are veracious predators of aphids making them a very beneficial insect to have in the garden.
Solitary Bees - Bees are highly effective pollinators, feeding on plants of the same species and transferring pollen from flower to flower in the process.
Bees play a vital role in food production, with one third of the food we eat dependent on pollination by bees.
