Gardening and landscaping are fantastic activates for outdoor enthusiasts.  One of the most satisfying fruits of one’s labor (sometimes literally) are beautiful gardenscapes that are breathtaking to behold.  Unfortunately, there are sometimes negative factors that affect our outdoor sanctuaries in the forms of pest insects, diseases, and other environmental factors.  The traditional course of action has often been to look up pesticides, herbicides, and other chemical solutions to these issues.  However, chemicals are not necessarily the only answer.  In the interest of trying to create a healthier environment, it is advantageous to consider more natural solutions. 

Join Reference & Technology Librarian Ron Fairchild for a glimpse at some different options for natural biological "pesticides," including some truly fascinating beneficial insect and arachnid species!
