Attracting Beneficial Insects - A New Approach?

Michigan State University has been conducting an interesting study on attracting beneficial insects:

Since I live near Michigan, I found the "Which Plants are Best" link very helpful:

I'm down from you in the state of Illinois but I am far north toward the WI border. That's a nice site you found. I didn't realize they had such nice fact sheets on plants.

I was not familiar with Scrophularia marilandica until I followed your link. Exciting information not readily found elsewhere.

Thanks, that is a beautifully designed, really informative site. The immediate access to photos and information on the insects mentioned was excellent.
