Creepy Crawly Things In Your Yard

* Butterflies - Nectar rich plants like lavender and marjoram create a butterfly friendly habitat. Your garden should get a plenty of sun with some wind and shade protection.

* Ladybugs - These good luck ladies help rid your garden of nasty pests. Herbs and other green leave plants will attract them.

* Fireflies - Turns off the lights so fireflies will signal to one another with their illuminated bodies. They also like resting on tall grass, so you may want to leave a small patch not-mowed. Catch one in a jar by baiting it with a flashlight, moving the light up and down mimic its movements but be sure to set the firefly free within few hours.

- Get a sugar water feeder or grow morning glory or foxglove.
