Beneficial Insects for a Gorgeous, Chemical Free Lawn

You love your beautiful backyard, and you work hard to keep it that way. The bad news is that soil- and leaf-dwelling pests love it, too! If you see brown patches in your lawn, or notice sickly plants, you may need to re-establish your beneficial insect populations, and then limit your use of insecticides to preserve them.

Nematodes are microscopic worms that eat about 200 different garden pests, including the larvae of crane flies, fleas and root weevils.  They’re easy to apply:  simply use a garden sprayer to cover your lawn and help clear a lawn infestation.  Just visit a Backyard Bird Shop to pick up a container of nematodes, and start your “green pest control” regimen.

Ladybugs eat aphids, leafhoppers, whiteflies, spider mites, moth eggs, and even plant and pollen mildews.  Release ladybugs in your garden to help control these pests.  Backyard Bird Shop offers these beneficial insects to help you use fewer chemicals, and more natural methods, to control lawn pests.
