Create a Healthy Garden to Benefit Insects

Insects get a bad rap! Most are not pests; in fact, we could not survive life as we know it without them. There are many ways to improve the health and beauty of your garden by creating a haven for beneficial insects, from supporting their habitat to selecting the right kinds of plant life.

Join author and professor of biodiversity science Dr. Dan Duran as he shares what insects do to benefit our ecosystem and how we can help them perform their biological duties.
