Keep your plants healthy and avoid dangerous pesticides by purchasing Ladybugs to control aphids, mites and other insects that harm them. Remember, ladybugs will fly to neighboring gardens when they have eaten the pests in your yard. You can encourage them to stay and attract more by planting geraniums, cosmos and coneflowers. If you have pets and children, it is always best for them and the environment to seek natural pest control like ladybugs, green lacewing and assassin bugs. As a result, you’ll help protect the environment and have a beautiful garden.
