mmmm 005   My husband I have worked very hard to clean up our yard and gardens. We have a garden that we love with beautiful flowers and bushes. I usually only take notice to the debris and bugs that destroy my garden. Until now I have never given thought to the insects and bugs that help our gardens grown and maintain it during the fall weather. Truly Nolen has sent me a fall season pest kit. Did you know there are pests that are actually beneficial to have in your garden? For instance, ladybugs are capable of consuming up to 50 to 60 garden-destroying aphids and insects per day. With fall right around the corner, it’s important to be aware of helpful critters you may encounter roaming around your precious garden. Although your garden may seem to be populated by destructive pests, there is an abundance of beneficial bugs strong enough to aid the fight against the pesky ones. To help maintain a beautiful garden this fall, Truly Nolen is educating readers on the pests that are actually beneficial to gardens such as ladybugs, praying mantis and decollate snails. This season’s pest kit includes the following reminders of valuable bugs: ·        Rubber ladybugs & fake leaves: Some of the aphids and insects ladybugs eats are scales, mealy bugs, leaf hoppers, mites and various types of soft-bodied insects. ·        Fake rose: Save your flowers with nature’s own chemical free pest control, the praying mantis. The mantis consumes months, roaches, beetles and grasshoppers and eggs can be bought at our local garden store. ·        Plant seeds: The decollate snail is a predator of plant-destroying slugs and brown garden snails. Decollates also eat old leaf mulch, but they do not eat healthy plants. I did not know all this important information. I have had plants die off in the fall and had to replace them when spring comes. I have put the rubber lady bugs, leaves, rose and plant seed in my garden. I have seen a lot of lady bugs lately and didn't know why. I just thought I was going to have good luck. Ha! Just to find out it's because they are eating the aphids. For more information click here.
