A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, and die gallantly. Specialization is for insects. -Robert Heinlien
NOTE: Since most damaging pests will be controlled by healthy numbers of naturally occurring beneficial insects before they become a problem for you, it is very important for you to do your part to protect their populations. Before treatment, identify the insect. If treatment is necessary, spray only the affected plants and use the least toxic products available. Chemical products are harmful to beneficial organisms and even natural pesticides can reduce the population of helpful insects and microorganisms so be sure to use only what is neccessary.
