Pest Control

I know, I know enough with the bugs now! But isn't he cool?
I love my garlic chives and planted them amongst my other plants because they (according to a trusted source) are great pest deterrents.
Not in my garden. Or maybe it's a Chinese or Italian bug ~ garlic with everything, or, even better maybe he is not a pest.
Now there's a thought.

It is, isn't it.

Heloise, are your garlic chives invasive? I remember inheriting some in a former garden and having a hard time controling them. I love the flowers.

Keep the bugs coming. I have never seen a black and white polka dot beetle before.
