Beneficial Insects

Nature’s way of controlling garden pests without chemicals! Beneficial insects feast on aphids, mites, caterpillars and other plant-consuming bugs and are harmless to people, plants and pets. Our comprehensive selection helps you match the correct predator/parasite to your pest problem. For best results, release beneficials at the first sign of a problem. If pest populations are high, use the least-toxic, short-lived natural pesticide — Insecticidal Soaps, Horticultural Oils, Botanical Insecticides — to establish control before releasing predators/parasites. Need help? Our knowledgeable staff can help. Grower’s Guide (PDF)
