Ladybug Life Cycle
Most species of ladybugs are considered useful insects since they eat aphids and scale insects. In other words, they provide organic pest control. For more information, see our post on ‘Ladybugs’.
Dragonflies over the Pond
Dragonflies seem like they would be pollinators, but they aren’t. They do eat lots of insects though. On any given day during the warm months, our small pond in the back yard attracts dozens. As a result, we’ve noticed that our mosquito problem has all but disappeared.
Possum at Night
We’ve had this little guy or members of his family with us quite a while, and like having him around. See our post from February of 216 ‘Yassum, That’s Our Possum‘.
