Wildlife habitat planting

 

 

Frogs and lizards eat insects including mosquitos, and are very susceptible to pesticides. And all are fun to watch, for children of all ages!

The easiest way is to encourage native plant communities, they need little care from us once planted.

 

In addition to food there are manmade homes to encourage mason bees(pollinators), ladybug beetles ( pest patrol), bats ( eat tons of mosquitos) and even owls to go after those pesky mice and rats.

 

PS - please don't feed the deer. This actually encourages mountain lions, as well as the ticks that carry lime and other diseases.
