Garlic vs beneficial insects

Will planting garlic in tomatoes discorage beneficial insects from coming to tomatoes.

I know Marigolds have always been a companion plant to tomatoes. Presently I have garlic and onions just inches away from all my tomato plants. IÂm sure a bee will go to the flowers no matter what.

Thanks Robin I had Marigolds and garlic last year and saw lots of Bees. I was thinking about lady bugs and lacewings I`m thinking about buying some this year. I didn`t see any last year so I`ll have to import some this year. GOOD GARDENING and GOD BLESS BILL
