The hot weather will see your garden become a hive of activity, attracting bees, flies, butterflies, dragonflies, praying matises, beetles, millipedes, centipedes and spiders but it also attracts the nasty bugs that no one wants around like mosquitoes and cockroaches.

Contrary to most people’s beliefs, killing these bugs isn’t always the answer because in doing so we can damage ecosystems and affect our own health negatively.

Here are a few good reasons to consider natural alternatives when you find yourself reaching for the bug spray,

1. Encourage bees and butterflies. These insects pollinate flowers, which means more of them in the garden will result in more flowers.

2. Decomposers break down leaf litter and organic waste and are good for the soil.

3. Beneficial bugs can eat the pesky ones. For example dragonflies often eat mosquitoes.

4. Insects attract more wildlife to your garden.

5. Children are stimulated to learn by a garden teeming with insects.
