Some Key Points About Pollinator-Saving Mosquito Control

As we are now in the thick of summer, the mosquitoes have returned. There are many actions you can take to reduce their numbers. The Arlington Master Naturalists have posted some information that you can use to control mosquitoes while at the same time protecting our beneficial pollinators from deadly pesticides.

Plant for Pollinators (and Life)

If you missed the informative session on May 11, 2019, at the Lee Center Butterfly Garden, you are in luck! The presenter gave us a Pollinator Gardening Summary that contains some highlights from the presentation and information that you can use in your own home gardening.

The May 11 information session was intended to support national initiatives to help very imperiled pollinators. We learned about groupings of mainly native plants that can provide three seasons of food for bees and butterflies, and also help birds. Information included lists of plants; their size, color, and bloom periods; and how to group perennials, shrubs, and trees to create natural habitat.
