Remember in the March letter I put a little teaser question about a pest free garden?
Here’s the solution.
Can you control bad bugs like Aphids, Whiteflies, Thrips and more? Can you do this without spraying?
Well…Almost free. You do need to provide room and board. That means you need to have lots of small nectar rich flowers for the Lacewings to sip on. The easiest and best is Sweet Alyssum
Do they eat any aphids or whiteflies. No, but the little alligator looking babies that hatch out of those eggs are voracious. They look like little tiny alligators and begin immediately to eat on all of your bad insects
The easiest way is to order on line. We’ve listed two. Rincon Vitova is a company that we have used and they are nearby in Ventura. www.rinconvitova.com/ Arbico is another good source.. www.arbico-organics.com/
