Dublin Farmers' Market: July 15th

"Not all insects are nuances, pests, or poisonous. Some are actually beneficial"

"Some bugs eat our crops, but fortunately, there are other bugs that eat those plant-eating bugs. The trick is to make your garden appeal to them. Just like in the world of mammals, in the insect world, there are plant-eaters and there are animal-eaters. Those species that are referred to as beneficial insects, though they may be cute (like ladybugs), are those with carnivorous tendencies. The bug-eating bugs are the ones you want in your garden. They prey on pest insects or, in some cases, parasitize them—tachinid flies, for example, lay eggs in the heads of caterpillars and then the larvae hatch and tunnel into their host, quickly killing them." - Brian Barth, Modern Farmer
