Program Description:

Attracting Bees and Beneficial Insects with Native Plants, Shrubs, and Trees

Most insects have a positive impact in our landscapes. Native plants can be selected to attract specific bees and beneficial insects including predatory and parasitic wasps, beetles, flies, true bugs, and lacewings. Learn about the predator-prey relationships of these flower-visiting beneficial insects and how they help keep problem insect populations in balance. The life cycles, diversity, and nesting habitat of native bees will also be covered along with examples of native plants, shrubs, and trees for different site conditions.

Bio: Heather Holm is a Landscape Designer and Consultant, specializing in pollinator landscapes and native landscape restorations. She is the author of two books: Pollinators of Native Plants and her new book Bees: An Identification and Native Plant Forage Guide.

 

 

Heather’s books will be available for purchase at the event.
