|Welcome to the Big Bug Hunt 2018 international research project newsletter!
|The search for bugs requires a little detective work, especially early
on in the growing season. Fellow Big Bug Hunters: We call on you to
look beyond the obvious and seek out every hidey-hole, nook and cranny
where bugs may lurk!
Sharpen your senses and observe closely. Potential pests may be found in leaf axils (where leaves join the stem), in the ground around plants, on the undersides of leaves or hidden under slabs, lumber and other garden objects. Check regular hangouts too, including young shoots, buds and leaf tips. Discovering pests before they get out of hand will give you and your plants a distinct advantage.
Whenever you find a bug, whether garden pest or beneficial bug, please take a moment to report it. Remember, every report helps to develop a better understanding of how bugs appear and spread.
Ones to WatchButterflies and bees bring color and movement to the garden. They’re also essential pollinators. Don’t forget to let us know when you see them!
|Learn more about these and other pests, plus beneficial bugs here.
