Welcome to today’s 1:5:10:365 Tip for becoming a better steward for our home and planet environment.

1:5:10:271 EcoTip: Now is a good time to think about attracting beneficial insects and creating safe places for them to over winter.


 Additional Information:

Queen Ann’s Lace, Alyssum, White Cosmos and Bronze Fennel are good plants for helping beneficial insects over the fall and winter into spring. They should be planted in out of the way places that will not be disturbed by tilling and of course never be sprayed or treated. This will give the beneficials a safe place for those that over winter or their eggs. Don’t pull the plants out and throw them away when they die – If you throw them away the beneficials go with the debris.
