Bugs bug me. Must they come into MY garden? Come on. My neighbors (one in particular) don’t give a “hoot” about their yard. I encourage all bugs to go there and enjoy whatever vegetation they want to munch on. Shoot. Termites even munch on the house to the east; but the residence don’t care.
It’s a constant battle that the bugs will eventually win. I will continue to pick, squash, smash, spray, and snip bugs. I suppose I should be encouraged to know that if the bugs can eat in my garden, the garden must be safe for me to eat too.
