DecemberDec 07 2019 09:30am - 11:30am
INSECTARY GARDENS – NATURE’S PEST CONTROL SAT. 12/7/19, 9:30AM - 11:30AM, HOUSTON MUSEUM OF NATURAL SCIENCE $30
Insectaries are fascinating gardens – in bloom much of the time, and alive with some of nature’s most interesting creatures! Organic gardeners depend on beneficial insects as one of our front line defenses against pest species. Yet how do we invite them to choose our gardens as their home and hunting ground? Beneficials are attracted to a specific ecosystem that provides food and habitat and supports their reproduction. Learn to create pocket insectaries that include all of the plants and amenities required to attract beneficials and keep them in your garden. You can create a pocket insectary in a container and move it anywhere you see a pest problem arising.
