We at The Plant Kingdom do not use any pesticides or chemicals. We use 100% beneficial insects. We get shipments of them weekly during the greenhouse season.
Beneficial insects are a natural, organic, environmentally sustainable way to control pest. They fall into three main categories.
Pollinators: These insects help pollinate your garden flowers. (Butterflies, bees, moths, and flies)
Predators: These insects eliminate pest by eating them. ( Ladybugs, spiders, green lacewing larvae, and praying mantis.)
Parasitizers: These insects, like predators also prey upon other insects, but in a different way. They lay their eggs on or in the "bad bugs". When the eggs hatch, the larvae feed on the host.
Below are some Tech sheets on some of the beneficial insects we use at the greenhouse.
