In order to have beneficial insects in the garden, they must be fed. And to be fed they need the destructive insects everyone wants to hose down with chem spray. If you want lady bugs, leave the aphids. Want parasitic wasps? Leave the loopers. Want good soil? Feed the worms a feast of bacteria and protozoa. Need bacteria and protozoa? Feed the wild birds. Growing organic food is all about feeding the right crew.
