About This Project

Spiders are beneficial predators that eat a variety of pest insects in gardens and agricultural fields. Our research will focus on the long-term research question: how do we conserve spider diversity through native wildflower plantings? Bees have received considerable research effort to improve pollination. Research is needed on spider responses to wildflowers. To address this question, wildflower plots will be established to monitor bloom date, and spider occurrence.
