Beneficial Insects: What They Are and How to Attract Them to Your Garden?

Tuesday, November 16 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Insects provide many important services in our gardens. Here in Oregon, we have hundreds native bees, flies, beetles, and moths that pollinate our flowers and crops. We also have an army of beneficial insects, including beetles, flies, and bugs that provide free pest control by preying on the pests living in our gardens.

In this webinar with Tualatin Soil and Water Conservation District you will learn about the different kinds of beneficial insects that might live in your garden. You’ll also discover how to provide food, water, and shelter to attract and sustain these helpful creatures year-round.

Join us for Beneficial Insects!

Join us at Naturescaping Wildlife Botanical Gardens in-person to resume our annual Mason Bee experience! Did you know Mason Bees are one of about 4000 native North American bees, without which most of our fruits and vegetables would not produce. You will see how easy it is to attract and maintain these important pollinators in your yard. Learn about the bees and then get hands-on experience as we will also be cleaning cocoons for our plant sale in the spring. In exchange go home with some of your very own bee cocoons!
