|I have created a garden patch here in the desert using a raised bed. I planted a mixture of annuals, perennials and shrubs. The mortality rate is understandably high due to the extremely high temperatures we experience,butI have had some success, and I seem to have a little "eco-system" going between plants and insects (like praying mantis). Recently however, probably as a result of soils used in its construction, a number of Lepiota chlorophyllum molybdites have appeared. I know they are poisonous but they teem with insects. Are they harmful to my plants? Should I remove them as a nuisance or should I keep some of them as alternative eating targets? I do not use pesticides.
