I don't think you can look at insects the same way before you were a dyed in the wool gardener as to after you have really felt closer to nature when you create a little piece of your own Eden. Insects play such important roles in how a garden thrives .. for the good and bad of course. To know the "good" it has to be contrasted with the bad .. such as my number one and two evil nemesis ? how do you phrase and spell the plural ?.. aphids and earwigs ... UGH !!!!!!
