  • Annuals and perennials
  • Hardy to Zone 4
  • Extended bloom period
  • Natural pest control

A Beetle Bank is planted at the edge of a cultivated field or home garden to lure beneficial insects and create habitat for insects and birds. Flowering annuals and perennials are mixed with fescues to produce a miniature forest-like habitat on the micro-scale. This encourages predatory insects like ground beetles, syrphid flies, ladybird beetles, and lacewings. As the flowers fade and seeds form, the Beetle Bank Blend produces a smorgasbord for songbirds that also feed on caterpillars and other pest insects. The tallest component of this blend grows to 120cm (48") tall. The blend is hardy to Zone 4.

2g (Covers Approx. 10sq ft)

The ingredients in our Beetle Bank Blend Wildflowers combine to attract beneficial insects and provide them with habitat in which to shelter and reproduce. This forms a natural environment that can be planted around or within agricultural fields to form a natural pest control system. Ground beetles and other beneficial insects will hunt down aphids, caterpillars, and other pest species to protect crops organically.
