3. Hummingbirds

Skilled in flying very fast, these birds sport an iridescent coat and are known for plucking bugs in midair to feast upon. They attack and eat aphids (a very hard pest to eradicate from your garden), ants, mosquitos, and wasps. You can help attract these birds to your yard using diverse types of flowering plants including cardinal columbine, foxglove, and hibiscus, in addition to keeping bird baths in your yard, as they love water.

By attracting beneficial birds to your garden and the surrounding area, you can create a safe zone for your plants to grow!
