I garden has got to have critters to be a healthy garden.  I know, you’ve been taught that garden critters are bad and just want to eat all your vegetables.  Not true.  Each backyard garden is it’s own little ecosystem and what is an ecosystem or planet without critters.

I bet you love ladybugs, but you can’t have ladybugs if you don’t have the lava they need to eat.  You can’t have the pretty butterfly if you don’t have caterpillars.  No Mr. Toad if he doesn’t have all the little bugs to eat.  Birds and squirrels my nibble around the edges of your vegges but if they have plenty of things to eat, they won’t gorge themselves.

Try to remember all bugs are good, and they are serving a needed purpose in the the ecosystem of your backyard.
