  1. As an avid gardener, I know beneficial insects are vital to any ecosystem. Without them, gardens would be overrun with harmful pests, resulting in decreased plant growth and productivity.

    Predators, as you mentioned, frogs, hummingbirds, ladybugs, and dragonflies help keep populations of harmful insects in check, preventing them from damaging plant life.

    In addition, these predators often consume large quantities of pests, helping to keep the garden free of disease. As a result, beneficial insects play an essential role in maintaining a healthy garden ecosystem. 

    1. Hello Steve

      As an avid gardener, you understand how important the balance is in nature.

      If people would stop using insecticides and MANAGE what they have, at least we and our food would be healthier. 

      I am amazed at how everything I write about is happening in my own garden – except for the aphids!
      It’s just wonderful to watch.

      Thank you for your comments.

      Regards, Corinne

    Great read Cook. I love your sense of humour and had no idea you were so knowledgeable.

    1. So glad you read this one. The “insect series” started with “What Are The Bees Knees?”
      And I am glad that it is fun to read!
      Let your inner writer get out!

    Hmmm. This blog made me realize we have not seen as many dragonflies here this year as we normally do. Course, we haven’t spent as much time out on the deck this year, either. It has been a busy summer for us. I’ll watch out for them now. We still do have an abundance of birds, though. lol

    1. Yes, Brenda it has been a busy summer for lots of people and the weather was a bit severe at times.
      I have noticed more dragonflies since I started watching for them. Who knew that they had such an important job? Nature is giving us so much, we just need to know what to look for.
      Thanks for your feedback.
