Insects come in all forms from the creepy crawly to the stunningly beautiful. I have found as we've built our soil and increased the plant life, the insect population has grown as well. Learning to live peacefully with some insects can certainly be challenging but many provide valuable inputs into the system we are creating when we build sustainable landscapes. Our goal here is to highlight some of the challenges and some of those insects than can contribute to the life in our yards in a beneficial way.
