Aphid Control Seed Mix

The selection of flowers in this mixture is designed primarily to attract beneficial insects (hoverflies, lacewings, ladybirds, etc.) that control aphid populations. It restores ecological balance by attracting beneficial insects and draws pests away from the vegetable garden.

In the second year, the regrowth of flowers attracts aphid-eating hoverfly larvae in early spring, thereby creating great potential for controlling aphids.
