In this post, I get up close and personal with the predators who are keeping the Aphids under control on our Tamarillo tree.
Actually, they’re Spider Mites filmed with my new digital microscope. As I learn more about microscopy, the videos and pics will improve, so bear with me! The new microscope has added so much more depth to my understanding of the dance of predator and prey in our garden ecosystem.
A garden is an ecosystem that we, the gardeners, are part of. As we consume the most of its bounty, I’m tipping that we’re Top Predator
It can be beneficial to leave a few plants after they have finished producing edible bits for you and use them as lures for pests.
