Gardening for Butterflies & Other Beneficial Insects (Atlanta, GA, Phoenix, AZ) (Episode #804H)

KQED Life: Sat, May 20, 2017 -- 1:30 PM

Ask a gardener these days what's on their short list of upcoming projects, and they'll likely name the addition or expansion of a butterfly or pollinator garden. That's because the loss of their native habitats to urban sprawl and the widespread use of herbicides in commercial farming has decimated many of the plants these insects need to survive. As gardeners often do, they're now rising up in force in an effort to restore lost habitats across the country, starting in their own backyards. In this episode, we work alongside national experts to show ways we can all attract and help restore populations of these threatened insects. At the same time, we'll be increasing the beauty of our landscapes with native plants that our beneficial insects depend on.
