Mealy Bug

Bugs and more bugs

Focus this week is on bugs and we certainly have plenty. Using a magnifying lens attachment for our phone and tablet I was able to zoom in and see these bugs in action.

So far I have identified mealy bugs (explains the green ants) and spider mites. 

I have consulted with Bugs for Bugs for advice on what to populate the greenhouse with and look forward to dealing with it in this way, rather than risk chemicals that could harm the fish.
