Ladybugs and praying mantis are some of the best natural predators for garden pests. Ladybugs eat aphids, mealybugs, spider mites and other small pests. Praying mantises eat insects like caterpillars, grasshoppers and crickets.

Both ladybugs and praying mantises are beneficial to have in your garden because they help to keep the pest population under control. This means that you can reduce the number of pesticides you use, which can be harmful to plants, animals and people.

So, if you’re looking for a natural way to keep your garden pests under control, consider adding ladybugs and praying mantises to your garden. Have questions about how to keep your garden pest-free? Ask our Garden Center Associates – they are always here to help!
