Of Bugs and Berries

Jessica Walliser
Hobby Farms Contributer

I headed to the raspberry patch last night to pick a few berries for dessert and couldn’t help but notice how alive the plants were. All sorts of insects were out and about and I was struck with how many different insects were in one 8- by 8-foot patch of brambles—and these were just the ones I could see! I ran back inside and grabbed my camera. Although I’m no professional photographer, I thought you might enjoy seeing what I found.

Jessica, it appears that you have a veritable super 8 motel for bugs in your berry patch. Bugs haven't been an issue this year in my garden but the mosquitoes are horrible probably because of the Missouri river flooding. I live just a crow's fly of a couple miles from the river.

Thanks for tour of the bug world in your berry patch.
