Getting ready to check on some hives! These bees were extra defensive today. Some beekeepers I know are quick to re-queen if a hive is too aggressive, I like to take my time with the bees, try not to squish too many, and I’ve found that with a year of careful handling, sufficient space, and a reduction of any other stressors, the bees calm down quite a bit. What do you do with aggressive hives? . . . #beekeeping #beekeeper #honeybee #bees #smallbusinessowner #atlanta #respectnature #happyplace #beneficialinsects #southeastbeescapes

Pretty sure this is an Ichneumon wasp. They don't sting and are beneficial, so don't kill it. Can anyone ID it? . . . . #beneficialinsects #pnw #oregonfarm #oregoncoast

Today’s Harvest. It was quite a bit as I’ve been away for a while. Special thanks to my beautiful daughter victoria___grace for taking care of the plants in my absence! Since it’s the 15th I’m starting my fast today and I’ve got a good amount to get me going. I’m going to use the 80 20 rule as a general rule of thumb here. 80% of my diet coming from the garden and 20% coming from other sources. Some have asked that I share the details on that, so I will do some of that here and there. #gardenfast #dailyharvest

When Mother Nature decides to give you spider mites you call in the big shots! Lady Bugs are massacring the mites. The second I let them out they started feeding which is odd because usually it takes a couple days for them to get settled in. #beneficialinsects #ladybugs #rhinoryder #fastbuds #weedstagram #naturalpesticide #ladybugmassacre

Ok people....color me surprised when I pulled out my bouquet to deliver and found this cutie crawling around in the flowers!! She managed to stay hidden during cutting, storage, arrangement and more storage! I’m feeling like one happy lady right now. Hopefully, there are more nearby. This one has been safely relocated to the Basil bed! . . . . . . #preyingmantis #beneficialinsects #luckygarden #pesticidefree #urbanflowerfarm #flowerfarmer

Checkin’ on the bees. They seem very happy and we’re grateful for the diversity and pollination they bring to the farm. Huge thanks to john.e.barry for the bee box and sunnylanearonia for hooking us up with equipment and knowledge. Hoping we get a decent harvest come fall! #growyourown #beekeeping #forthefirsttime #farmsneeddiversity #beneficialinsects #peoriaillinois

¿Sabes que algunos tipos de mosca nos ayudan a mantener a raya las plagas en nuestro huerto? Este es uno de ellos, las moscas ladronas, de la familia Asilidae. He podido fotografiar a una de estas moscas degustando su presa, una bonita chinche que le supera en tamaño. Do you know some species of fly help in pest control in our garden? This is one of them, the thieves flies, in the family Asilidae. I have been able to photograph one of these flies tasting its prey, a beautiful bug that surpasses it in size. #laecohuertadeltito #losguindales #huerto #ecologico #ecosistemahuerto #insectosauxiliares #mosca #huerto #ecologico #gardenecosystem #beneficialinsects #fly

Twenty-spotted lady beetle (Psyllobora vigintimaculata), a myco predator, in adult and larval form, on a monarda leaf. It has arrived to help out with the powdery mildew taking hold in the garden. This is my first time seeing one, and I didn't realize that some lady beetles ate fungus until I did some research to ID this species. #permaculture #ladybugs #ladybeetles #ladybug #ladybugs🐞 #ladybird #ecology #gardening #gardens #gardenecology #beneficialinsects #beneficialpredators #fungus #powderymildew #fungalinfection #fungal #plantdiseases #naturalgardening #pesticidefree #pesticidefreezone #regenerativegardening #resilience #urbanfoodforest
