    So that's where the Aphids went

    I've been struggling to find any Aphids in the garden then I came upon these voracious predators. Puzzle solved I believe.

    Now there's a handy little insect.
    The profile pic that you see above is my actual photo. I am a hyper-intelligent snake that has learned to use the internet and I will eventually rule you all.

    Just kidding..... Or am I?

    Why were you so eager to find aphids?

    I love these guys! They always make me think of little six legged Alligators.

    My Drosophyllum seedlings, I'm trying to bulk them up a little. I lost two to a night visitor (since deceased ) so it's imperative the remaining two survive. At present they're in a fairly inaccessible place (for Gastropods) surrounded by a minefield of slug pellets. I have to say fairly as that mainly applies to snails, the slugs appear to be able to get everywhere, last week I found a platoon of sluglings abseiling from the roof vent.

    Slugs can get anywhere and everywhere if they want to. In the fall here, they tend to squeeze through the door and get into the house, I've seen some pretty big ones in my kitchen near Halloween.
