Bug Catchers

By mcash70

I keep a few small jars in my shed, and when I see a bug that I don't recognize, I put it in the jar until I find out what it is. That way I don't kill the good bugs.

Thumbs up That's thinking. Green Grin!

Wow, great idea ... I have a bunch of little bugs here at my new house and I have no idea if they are good or bad bugs. I hate using chemicals and a neighbor told me I really need to get rid of them although she had no clue what they were. I need to collect a few in a jar and take some photo's ... and go find our Super Sleuth Janet over on her bug cubit to have them identified! Smiling

Lin, that sure sounds like a good plan! Super Sleuth Janet will surely identify them! At this time of year, it can go either way, good or bad bugs.
I am one of those that wants to know what every bug in the garden is, and what its doing there! LOL
