Bug Off

Bug Off
Bugged by garden insects?

You could run to the nearest nursery and buy a toxic concoction to spray on your six-legged foes, but there is a natural way to protect your garden. Invest in a Predator Insect Kit from the Bug Store and release a potent army of allies into your special plot. These boxes of bugs are personally customized for your climate and include four different species of beneficial insects to help reduce even the most harmful creepy crawlers in your landscape. Bug Store predators chow down on problem pests and help restore the balance of nature. Plus, predators are fun and educational for children—and they get results.

A typical bug store kit covering 400-500 square feet contains 1,000 lacewing eggs, whose hatchlings will feed on soft-bodied insects / 1 case of praying mantis eggs, producing mantises that will feed on smaller insects / trichogramma, parasite eggs that, once hatched, will feed on caterpillar eggs / and 1 million beneficial nematodes, which kill lawn and soil grubs and reduce fleas, beetle larvae and more than 200 species of unwanted soil-borne caterpillars.
