Attracting Predators to Your Organic Orchard

Beats applying chemicals. Yarrow under the apple trees is great for predatory wasps. Highly recommended.

Catnip grows well under there, too.

For predatory wasps and for my pruning buddy, boots. You can see from the apple tree in behind that pocket gophers are not his specialty.

 

Embarrassing for a stump-perching cat, really.

That’s an orchard that needs a dog.

    • Oh, Upper Case. He is a proud and social fellow. It is cool to think that his brother lives with you! Fantastic.
