when to buy/ release beneficial insects
We’ve recently moved to Boston, MA– new climate and ecological environment. So need some advice as to when to buy from you and when it would be best to release the following beneficial insects in our garden: praying mantis, lady bugs, lace wings and white fly parasites.
It is only mid-March, there are no buds on the trees but daffodils and tulips are just peeping through the soil. Our first summer, last summer, we noticed white flies, aphids, cabbage loopers, cut worms, leaf miners (did a massive job on the beech and maple tree leaves), and mosquitos to name a few. We’ve managed out gardens in previous places via beneficial insects, over time. But we new to the NW.
Thank you in advance for your advice.
