95% of insects are beneficial or benign. Being a good organic gardener requires you to get over insect phobia and learn how and why to attract beneficial insects into your garden to do the work for you (using flowering and/or companion plants). If you have to immediately control an insect infestation, please use non-synthetic organic/OMRI listed insecticides.

1550 LIVE LADYBUGS + GARDEN NECTAR

GrowJourney Note: A favorite “good bug,” ladybugs have been a popular beneficial insects for the past 20 years. Make sure to release them at sundown because ladybugs don’t fly at night, and watering leaves just prior to release also helps to keep them in your yard since they’re very thirsty after being in a bag.

Additional Info: LADYBUGS (Hippodamia convergens, a common Native North American Species)

PEST AND DISEASE CONTROL – 4

2 CAROLINA MANTIS EGG CASES (50-200 Baby Mantids)

GrowJourney Note: Make these incredible native predators part of your pest insect control strategy! The adults praying mantids are voracious predators to many pest insects! If you plan to hatch them indoors before you put them outside (it’s a great project for kids!), you’ll need to purchase wingless fruit flies (you can get them from any pet store) so they have something to eat in their first few weeks. If you hatch them outside, do it near bushes or shrubs so they can start hunting immediately after hatching.

Additional Info: Carolina Mantis (Stagmomantis carolina), not the non-native and possibly more indiscriminate sp. of mantis, the Chinese Mantis.
