Good bugs are essential to our survival.
Ladybirds, praying mantids, lacewings and hover-flies, eat the aphids, mites and caterpillars that attack our plants. Honey bees, native bees, butterflies and moths pollinate our plants, giving us flowers, fruits, nuts, seeds, grains and vegetables.
We can encourage healthy populations of good bugs.
Choose not to spray insecticides or fly sprays at home and in the garden.

Plant bug attracting flowers.
Ladybirds are attracted to big, flat flowers like marigolds and calendula. Honeybees like flowers full of sticky pollen, like dandelions, borage and lavender. Native stingless bees really like the delicate flowers of tea trees, bottle brush and rosemary.
