Aphids, armyworms, and black vine weevils are just a few of the culprits behind damaged plants. These pests can stunt growth, deform flowers, and even kill your beloved garden residents.

Not all bugs are foes; some, like lady beetles, are natural predators of aphids. Embracing beneficial insects can be a key strategy in maintaining the balance and health of your garden ecosystem.
