Growing a Greener World Natural Pest Control

Growing a Greener World: Natural Pest Control

Here is a link to a fairly new episode to a garden show I really enjoy. Over the winter I think they stopped releasing episodes and I haven't visited their site until now. Time for me to get caught up. I was impressed with the level of information this show gives.

Also I noticed how naturally they tip toed the issue of the Multicolored Asian Lady Bug, Harmonia axyridis, an invasive species being sold for as organic pest control. They simply say buying adults isn't the best option because they tend to just fly away and can also transport disease. In a perfect world the sale of this species would be banned entirely. I'm happy to learn native species of lady bugs are available for sale.
