#Carrots (#Daucus carota) left to flower attract many small #beneficialinsects. At first glance their #flowers resemble the flowers of the #poisonousplant #hemlock (#Conium maculatum) that is common in the environs of the #SanctuaryMahiWhenua. Many people are surprised by the unexpected size and shape of carrot flowers, and appreciate their contrast with the many other flowers grown at the Sanctuary that also provide food to beneficial insects. #communitygarden #organic #citygarden #foodforest #localfood #Unitec #wairakaprecinct #gardening

Hasty ‘walk-out’ test done on a slow release sachet to check performance. It’s normally best to have the sachets up in the canopy at this point instead of hangin’ in the breeze. Despite this fact the activity was good for week #2. . . . #science #beneficialinsects #integratedpestmanagement #cannabis #cannabiscommunity #oregoncannabis #ommp #prop215 #prop203 #amendment64 #mmmp #californiacannabis #coloradocannabis #i502

Had the pleasure of meeting the Sour Jack Quartet this weekend lol. A great looking grow by @abe_bram. He is taking the soilless approach by growing in Rock-wool. Soilless has intrigued me due to the problems soils can have within my apartment. Some benefits are, it is much cleaner, takes up less space, you can see root growth and it’s easier to properly water. #cropkingseeds #ilovecropkingseeds #sourjack #farmerjim #farmerjimandhiscats #grodan #rockwool #advancednutrients #growmicrobloom #highgrade #growyourown #smokeyourown #sativa #trichomefarmer #trichomeporn #600watt #lowstresstraining #topping #keepgrowing #weedstagram420 #marijuanagrowers #marijuanacommunity #weedgrower #cannabiscommunity #cannabiscultivation #cannabisculture #beneficialinsects #thripex #cucumeris #cucumerismites

Ever seen a carrot flower? Most people that I show haven't ever had the opportunity. Carrots are biennial plants, meaning they flower and seed in their second year. Usually they are grown as an annual plant. Did you know that if you replant the carrot top, you'll grow the flowers? They are tall plants, and their umbels are kryptonite for insects, as well as being edible for humans. Here, you can see this carrot flower in my garden and it's crawling with beneficial ladybugs. #querquetalana #kitchengarden #edibles #vegetablegarden #permaculture #pollinators #beneficialinsects #flowers #edibleflowers

Winter closing in and IPM still going strong. Been seeing adult lacewing throughout the cover crop. I released lacewing larvae this past summer for mite and aphid control. The cover crop will allow them a habitat to lay eggs in that'll eventually hatch in the spring. #lacewing #IPM #permaculture #beneficialinsects #covercrop #alfalfa #legumes #closingtheloop #cannabisbreeding #ilovethisshit #doqtee

Another useful fly. The adults and immature of these Robber Flies eat a range of insect pests like leafhoppers; and some useful ones as well! #inmybackgarden #robberflies #beneficialinsects #leafhoppers #insectpests #canberragardener #gardenlife #cbrregion

Pineapple mint flower - Like others in the family, this #mint is edible and can be used to flavor tea and jelly or as a colorful garnish. More often, though, #pineapplemint is grown as an #ornamental for the variegated #foliage. The spikes of white, pink, or pale purple #flowers are attractive to #pollinators and other #beneficialinsects.

It was a Guild of Assassins, after all. Black was what you wore. The night was black and so were you. And black had such style, and an Assassin without style, everyone agreed, was just a highly paid arrogant thug. -Terry Pratchett, Night Watch . . My own personal assassin. Get those thrips! Proud to find many of these guys on my roses lately. It means I am growing a healthy insecticide free garden! . . Assassin bug (Reduviidae). Predatory insect (beneficial). Prey on small invertebrates such as aphids, beetles, and stick bugs. Careful though! They won’t hesitate to bite a finger if you get too close 😮 . . Pope John Paul II. Hybrid Tea. Very fragrant.

In my garden: another geranium that is much loved by Bumblebees, G. pratense 'Plenum Violaceum'; and one that is also much loved by our furry friends, who like to regularly "browse" on it! It's a vigorous, free flowering plant that blends in beautifully with other summer perennials etc, in either sun, or partial shade, and never seeds as a nuisance like some geraniums. Such a popular plant at Renfrew Garden, and one I highly recommend! 🍃💜💜💜🍃 #geraniumpratenseplenumviolaceum #geraniumpratense #geraniumsinbloom #geraniumflowers #summerflowers #summerperennials #cottagegardenflowers #inmygardentoday #oldfashionedflowers #bumblebeeonflower #bumblebeesinmygarden #beneficialinsects #organicgarden #newzealandgarden #nzgarden #dunedingarden #renfrewgarden

Pest Identification & Management 🧝🏻‍♀️ An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. But that being said... Every grower, [whether they want to admit it or not 😉] has had to deal with #bugs at some point in one way or another. #themoreyouknow, the easier it is to spot the problem & early detection can help isolate an issue quickly, preventing a full blown #infestation. There are many ways to deal with the #insects in your garden based on the style & size of your grow and what level of infestation you have. This is all about the #beneficialinsects Remember 👉 A clean & sanitary space, proper initial set-up, and perpetual vigilance are your best means for prevention 👍 Swipe through for a couple of my favourite charts and diagrams on the most common #cannabis pests & their predators. ☆ Many #beneficials will eat pollen or other vegetation when they have run out of prey, so companion planting can help sustain populations between flare-ups. 👩‍🎓 #knowledgeispower #growarevolution #earldabsdoyou #420 #cannabiscommunity #highsociety #topshelflife #710 #earldabs #growlife #keepitgreen #staylifted #potpixie #hightimes #cannabis # #legalization #girlswhogrow #earldabslabs 🧚‍♀️💚Need something a little more in depth?

Our corn is starting to form tassles. We found small red mites on the inside leaves but swarms of ravenous ladybugs have descended and are biologically taking care of the problem. A garden full of biodiversity and beneficial insects. Not a chemical in sight. Just nature doing its thing 🐞🐝

Queens of the greenhouse! We had two different species of paper wasps build their nests in our greenhouse this year, and this gem was attached to the hip board. Did you know paper wasps can recognize and remember faces? There’s a lot of people that can’t even do that... Shown some respect, they’re invaluable allies that pollinate flowers and hunt pests! 今年ハウスの中にはアシナガバチの巣が2つありました。アシナガバチは顔まで認識できるんですよ。一回、巣の近くのトマトを収穫してたら刺されたけど、害虫を食べてくれるのでとてもありがたい🐛 #paperwasp #nest #letemworkletemlive #beneficialinsects #アシナガバチ #巣 #仲間

Love happy people. Goooo lil troopers!!!! 🔥🔥🔥#Repost @grassfrommass ・・・ The cavalry has arrived 🙌🏻 ordered them yesterday and got them this morning. Talk about service, not to mention the quality of insects, second to none. I had a small fungus gnat population starting to make their home in my nice humidity dome for the seedlings. I refused to use any pesticides or chemicals, even refraining from neem as I believe it kills our beneficial fungus. I am beyond happy to implement these buggers as my pest control. @evergreengrowerssupply #evergreengrowerssupply #killnaturally #nopesticides #cannabiscommunity #oregoncannabis #oregoncannabiscommunity #getbugs #goodbugs #beneficialinsects

The entrance to this ADU is now flanked by pollinator islands, hard to leave the door without stopping to watch the activity. Overlapping bloom periods ensure a long nectar source and a dynamic color change over the seasons. Interplanting the sprawling Salvia with the rigid spears of Libertia helps keep it upright and adds a depth of color. #landscapearchitecture #landscapedesign #pollinatorgarden #smallspaceliving #biodiversity #beneficialinsects #californiagarden #finegardening #salviachamaedryoides #epilobiumcalifornicum #ajugablackscallop

The climate information that you provide to us has a major impact on what biocontrol species and products we choose to recommend. Our recommendations for this room would have been completely different had we been told it was 79F with 37% RH.

Throw back to this summer when I found a whole slew of green lacewing eggs on my swamp milkweed. Just a few days later, the lacewing larvae were busily munching on the oleander aphids all over my milkweed. A few days after that, no more aphids. It’s amazing what Momma Nature can do all by herself, without any “help” from us pesky humans. . . . #beneficialinsects #bugsrule #bugnerd #bugsarecool #lacewing #lacewingeggs #milkweed #milkweedformonarchs #pollinatorgarden #thesmallthings #payattention #natureisamazing

Kids love tiny things when they are young. Our 3 year old is fascinated by ants and we always love seeing the harvester ants working and marching. People often think that red harvester ants are fire ants. But this is a mistake. Unlike the red imported fire ant, harvester ants are native to Texas. They are actually a beneficial insect and are important to the survival of the Texas Horned Lizard. Planting native grasses for these ants to forage will help them and the animals that depend on them. . . . . #harvesterants #ants #redharvesterant #texashornedlizard #nativegrasses #npsot #fwgb #fortworth #fortworthparks #fortworthtexas #fwgreenandblue #greenbriarpark #wildlife #insects #texaswildlife #beneficialinsects

And as if my day wasn’t already going well, look what arrived just now 🎉🎉🎉 @jessicawalliser - I cant wait to get stuck into reading this!! What perfect timing - I’m taking a three week break from work starting tomorrow! 📖 📖 📖 . . And let me just compliment @amazon and @aramexsouthafrica - years ago when I ordered from Amazon, it was always a guessing game when the package would arrive at my post office and then it was another guessing game as to what the import duties would be. Now, Amazon only delivers door-to-door using Aramex, and all import taxes are calculated and paid up front. I only ordered this book a week ago, and it’s already in Johannesburg. Wow! . . #books #gardeningbooks #garden #vegetablegarden #vegetablegardening #beneficialinsects #pestcontrol #organicgardening #workwithnature #beneficialbugs

Look at this ladybug nymph I found eating some of the aphids on my coriander plant. Currently my coriander plant is heavily infested by Aphids and so comes the hoard of ladybugs and beneficial insects like hoverflies. I should really do something about the aphids though, I tried coating some flour on the plant since it makes the constipated but I’m not sure if it’s working or not. Anyways, it’s so cool to see these ladybug nymphs eating some of the aphids. #ladybug #ladybugnymph #beneficialinsects #insect #ladybugs #cilantro #coriander
