There are good bugs and bad bugs. There are bugs that act like ladies, and there are bugs that will kill everything in your garden. It’s not always easy to know which is which, so here is a guide that will help make that easier to determine.
Ladybugs – Great for flowers and vegetable gardens.
Dragonflies – These guys love eating mosquitoes, aphids, and other pests.
Spiders – With voracious appetites, they’ll keep your garden pest-free.
Bumblebees – They help fertilize plants with ease.
Sawflies – They’ll eat everything, and they are prolific breeders.
Potato Beetles – If you have potato plants, these will decimate the harvest.
Asparagus Beetles – Kiss your asparagus goodbye if these show up in your garden.
It’s not always easy to tell which is a good bug and which is a bad one. That’s why you need to keep a close watch on your garden throughout the growing season. Doing so will save your garden from any unwanted problems.
