Attracting Bees and Beneficial Insects with Native Plants
May 11 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Most insects have a positive impact in our landscapes. Native plants can be selected to attract specific bees and beneficial insects including predatory and parasitic wasps, beetles, flies, true bugs, and lacewings. Learn about the predator-prey relationships of these flower-visiting beneficial insects and how they help keep problem insect populations in balance. The life cycles, diversity, and nesting habitat of native bees will also be along with examples of native plants for different site conditions. Presented by Heather Holms, author of the books Native Plants for Pollinators and Bees: An Identification and Native Plant Forage Guide.
