Good Bugs, Not Drugs

To promote pollinator friendly native habitat, we provide a variety of alternatives to pesticides. We are also experienced in pest identification and working with commercial growers and home gardeners to address their agricultural pest problems using biocontrol or “good bugs, not drugs.” Beneficial insects are seasonally available for purchase, as well as garlic-based Mosquito Barrier yard treatment.

Availability of Beneficial Insects varies. May is the best time to introduce beneficial insects to your garden. 

We currently have Nematodes available. Contact us at for specific pest control requests.
