Pesticide Free Zone

We don't use pesticides at YellowTree Farm, we use bugs. These mantises were hatched recently in our greenhouse, and we keep dormant ladybugs on hand to assist when needed.


  1. I had a handful of mantises living on my patio for two summers in a row. I was bummed when they didn't reappear last year. Where do you get yours?

  2. Hi, I saw your article on RFT, excellent stuff.
    I was wondering about your biological controls. What kind of lady bugs are you using?
    Some species are quite invasive
    others are rare natives
    I'm phd student studying invasive honeysuckle in St Louis.
