Living on a farm brings all kinds of interesting insects and critters. Our last mini farm had black bear, cougars and bob cats in western WA.
This farm has some unique insects. Bees. We have been farming with no pesticides since 2013. Lady bugs are flying around everywhere this is a seriously good sign. Today we found bees drilling the sand and clay on our farm. They did not try to attack us.
Did you know Mason bees are useful for the farm?
Before killing an insect we must be sure we know the purpose in mother nature. God created every creature to have a purpose.
I hope you find this post educational and interesting.
