Below is a list of the ingredients in our Beneficial Insect wildflower seeds. This blend was designed to include the maximum number of flowers known to attract pollinators and predatory insects that feed on pest species. For instance, dill is attractive to lacewings, ladybird beetles, and the tiny parasitoid wasps that kill aphids. The purpose of this mix is to increase the biodiversity in your garden and take advantage of naturally occurring food pyramids to control pest insects and improve pollination at the same time. The ideal time to plant wildflower seeds is March to April.
