Spring has sprung! … Click through to take a virtual tour of MacArthur's
Over the past several years, MacArthur’s Nurseries has implemented many green initiatives as part of our long term commitment to reduce our environmental footprint.
Our most exiting initiative is related to the elimination of pesticide use. We understand our customers want healthy plants grown in a natural and sustainable way. MacArthur’s has implemented the use of natural occurring Biological Controls which we use on all our plants.
Biological Controls are an environmentally sound and effective way of reducing the pest population through the use of their natural enemies. These insect predators can be applied to our plants in order to control and eliminate the pest population. This is Nature’s way of controlling pests and is a sustainable solution compared to the application of pesticides.
A common example of a natural predator which we all know is the lady beetle, or lady bug. Lady bugs are hard at work every day in nature and in our greenhouses helping control harmful pest populations.
