More raspberries

Anyone who has a sizeable raspberry patch knows that bees LOVE raspberries. Watch a raspberry patch on a calm, sunny day, and you will see a variety of bees. And not just bees! Raspberries attract wasps, flies, beetles, and spiders too. 

So... Don't just grow raspberries for the delicious fruit. Grow raspberries for the beneficial insect community you will attract -- pest-eaters AND pollinators.

Keep in mind: pesticides will kill bees and other beneficial insects.

A healthy insect community in your garden means less work. Insect diversity = natural pest control and pollination services, without intervention.  Pretty cool.
