One of the most used searches for gardeners is “what bug / worm / pest is this?” As flower and vegetable gardeners we need to know the difference between the good beneficial insects, and the bad. Bad meaning they will destroy what is growing. Some worms will eat a bit of something only to change into a butterfly. The plant lives and supplies what is necessary. Other critters will cut down and destroy everything only to move on and do it again.
Beneficial or Bad?
Being a lover of nature, I like to find the reason behind any bugs and worms venturing into my gardens.
The beneficials are wanted, and I’m learning how to attract them.
The “bad” bugs will ruin a crop and kill plants.
