Skippers love native plants. The more variety of natives in your yard, the more variety of native beneficial insects you will see.

Skippers come in many colors. If you plant swamp milkweed in your yard and keep it well watered you may see many of them plus numerous other beneficial insects.

Leaf-wing bug an interesting pet.
