Good Bugs

As I have been busy planting and tending to my dahlias the last few weeks, I have continued to see a strong presence of lady bugs. Nothing pleases me more. I choose to garden 100% organically, both in my vegetable garden and in my flower garden. Because of this, I have both "good" bugs and a few "bad" bugs. But I know that the good bugs will ultimately keep the bad bugs in check. Since I am not using any chemicals that will harm them, my ladybugs help keep the aphid population in check.

How lucky for you to have ladybugs! I released ladybugs a month ago but I haven't seen very many ladybugs in the garden.

I'm seeing a lot more ladybugs this year, as well.
