Bug Bath

Postby Gituli » Fri Apr 05, 2013 3:04 pm

You can attract insects by offering them a ‘bug bath.’
Somewhat like a birdbath, a shallow container is filled with stones or gravel and just enough water to keep it moist.
Since insects are prone to drowning, add some larger stones to the dish to serve as suitable resting sites. This way they will be able to drink the water without becoming immersed in it.

Insects are necessary for many reasons.
Also, while designing a butterfly garden, Insects are necessary.

Butterfly Larvae eat these plants:
clovers, nettles and dill
mint, daisy, wild carrot (Queen Anne’s lace), cosmos, dill, tansy, marigold, and clover.
...It's All In the Mind...
