Lightning bugs (fireflies) not only pretty but beneficial too?Posted Friday, March 6, 2009, at 8:57 PM
Somehow I have missed this in all my reading about organic methods and beneficial insects. I read it on a blog today and then went to google to check it out. There is a good picture of a firefly larvae here. http://www.backyardnature.net/lightbug.h... The only drawback to them might be that they eat earthworms too.
Then go to http://www.mybedfordcounty.com/gardengle... for this week's gleanings on gardening news.
If you get a chance, the Nashville Lawn & Garden Show is in full swing. Here are some of the folks who will be there and more info. http://www.nashvillelawnandgardenshow.co... I won't be able to attend this year, even though I was offered free passes.
Thanks again for the offer.
