Bugs and Blooms:

Exploring and Supporting Backyard Ecosystems

Sarah McPike

There are insects we consider pests, but there are many more which we rely on to keep the ecosystem healthy, and to keep pest insects in check. By maintaining a yard that feeds pollinators, and helps pest-attacking insects thrive, we can nurture the balance between pest and other bugs. In this session, we will explore the relationships between bugs and blooms in your backyard and learn how to maintain a yard that supports them.
