Current planting regimes in urban landscapes may negatively impact the effectiveness of biological control agents. This project examines the relationship between indigenous natural enemies and plants that serve as alternative food sources. Studies will be conducted to determine if the planting of different landscape plants in varying configurations increases the ability of indigenous natural enemies to control landscape pests.
