Ma Nature’s Pest Controllers

It is often difficult (very, very difficult) not to want to just spray or sprinkle some lethal weapon of pest destruction when you see those vicious bugs munching on your food crops like there’s going to be no tomorrow. I’ve even learned to squash larvae with my bare fingers in rancor!

Painful though it is, I usually grit my teeth and divert my attention to another stint. My consolation is the most recent video of a more experienced Permie (someone practising Permaculture) in a similar situation.

Today I walked around checking to see that with so many destructive squirmies around, has Ma Nature set up her roster and assigned her pest controlling brigade to my garden yet. OK, I can see …

I guess I had better not be too demanding and short-sighted in my garden expectations. OK, it’s time to take a stand and Garexit (pardon the pun.)
