We love having a wide variety of umbels on the property as a natural pest control. Umbeliferous flowers attract small wasps (as pollinators) which lay their eggs on the larva of fruit 'pest', so that they can eat them when they hatch. For us this means...less bigs eating our fruit! And we don't have to use noxious substances, just have more flowers!
