Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. A Beetle bank, In agriculture and horticulture, is a form of biological pest control. It is a strip planted with grasses (bunch grasses) and-or perennial plants, within a crop field or a garden, that fosters and provides habitat for beneficial insects, birds, and other fauna that prey on pests. Beetle banks are typically made up from plants such as: Sunflowers, Vicia faba, Centaurea cyanus, Coriander, Borage, Muhlenbergia, Stipa, and Buckwheats (Eriogonum spp.). The "beetle banks" are used to reduce or replace the use of insecticides, and can also serve as habitat for birds and beneficial rodents.show more
