Good Bug, Bad Bug: Learn Which is What in Your Garden
Growing Knowledge at the Farm Series Class
Thursday, July 19, 6:00 – 7:30 p.m.
The average square yard of garden contains over a thousand insects. For the most part, that’s a good thing. Some pollinate plants, some help break down organic matter, and some prey on other more damaging pests. Most of the insects in your gardens help – not hurt – your plants. Only a small fraction cause much damage.
Plants need insects for pollination, so no garden should be insect free, but there’s no denying some insects are garden pests. Learning to identify which insects to worry about and which to welcome is part of the learning process of gardening. Familiarize yourself with these good guys so you can encourage their presence in the garden and avoid killing them.
