Closed for June – An Immigrant Tick

Greetings, BugFans,

Today’s episode is a bit of a potpourri.

As if we needed another tick, here’s an account of a newcomer.

So many invasives, so little time – just in time for gardening season, an earthworm review: here and here.

The BugLady has been prowling the trails.  Here are two recent pictures she’s taken – one of a male Giant ichneumon wasp (he looks kind of damselfly-ish) and one of a Common Whitetail dragonfly that crawled out of the water, up a 15” bank, and across three feet of lawn before it stopped to rest and strengthen its wings.

Ain’t Nature Grand!
