Month of Green: Ladybugs and mason bees can help your garden

Insects can help keep your garden green. And by using them you won't have to use pesticides on your plants!



If you decide to grow roses this year, then your new friends might just be ladybugs.



The ladybugs guard your garden from unwanted insect pests naturally. They like to eat aphids and other bugs.



Another friend to your garden might be the mason bee. These bees are super pollinators and they're not aggressive - they do the work of 120 honeybees. 



Ladybugs and bees can really make a difference in your garden!
