For this week, I thought I would feature another insect that backyard gardeners may be facing soon. The cucumber beetle is a big nemesis for me. There are two types with very "creative" names - the Striped Cucumber Beetle and the Spotted Cucumber Beetle.
Several years ago I noticed an attractive, unique looking red moth fluttering around my garden. I stalked it, hoping it would pause long enough for me to get a photo. I spent an entire summer trying to photograph this moth. Eventually, triumphantly, I succeeded!
