Description
Attracting pollinators to your yard has an extra benefit: many are predators or parasitoids of our most annoying landscape pests. Learn how to recognize these “garden allies” in their different life stages, the primary plants that support them, and horticultural techniques that encourage them to live in your garden. A guided walk scouting for beneficial insects completes the day.
