Keep The Aphids For The Ladybugs

I had quite an entertaining show right outside my kitchen window. Since I took the screens off I am able to stick my head out and every now and then I find something amazing to watch. A couple weeks ago I watched some Ants and Aphids and wrote an article on them. I see aphids all the time in the garden and have learned to leave them alone. If you want the beneficial bugs (such as ladybugs that eat aphids), you will have to let some food around that will attract them and cause them to lay eggs in your garden.
