Whether you are a business or homeowner, landscaping and planting this time of year attracts more bugs besides attracting more curb appeal.

Othos Pest Management offers gardeners advice on how to avoid pest infestation with plants and shrubs this season. April and May are the busiest months for green thumbs to plant their seeds. A good amount of warm season vegetables, herbs and annual flowers are also planted in these months.
According to a November 29, 2010 article in The New York Times, research on wild sunflowers, shows they are home to lady beetles and parasitic wasps. Lady beetles and parasitic wasps are good bugs that kill bad bugs. “The sunflowers help us provide a bed-and-breakfast for beneficial insects and keep them going year round,” according to Mark Van Horn, director of the student farm at the University of California. Bad bugs consist of: carpenter worms, clearwing moth larvae, lace bugs, giant whitefly, mealybugs and scales.
