To make the most of your outdoor space this summer, you may need to take steps to control the pests that populate your lawn and/or garden. While some invasive species might affect the health of your plants, others may prevent you from being outdoors at all. If you are bothered by specific insects, it's important to know what is attracting them and also what habitat is supporting their population. For example, bees are great pollinators, but too many can be troublesome. Sometimes it helps to ensure that certain flowers are moved away from your seating area.
