Today, Rhonda Graves returns to join Lisa for another “Bug Talk.” And beneficial creatures too! They all have a purpose in a balanced ecosystem. Rhonda & Lisa discuss how to invite and maintain these beneficial creatures in your garden or on your farm, including pollinator garden plots, native tree and shrub plantings, “Beetle Banks” and “Habitat Islands.” Together they share the joy of getting to know the beneficial creatures in your garden and how to create a year-round habitat to keep them nearby.
