Learn how to identify beneficial bugs beyond bees and butterflies. We’ll discuss a variety of insect habitats, and their companion plants. You’ll leave with a better understanding of the cultural practices that promote a healthy backyard ecosystem.


Lady bugs, house centipedes, assassin bugs, cicadas, and more will be examined under a microscope.
Learn more about their morphologies, and why they prefer certain plants.
