Information

Name that insect!

Friend or foe?

Insects can be destructive or helpful in the garden - or even both! We don't want to kill everything willynilly without knowing what their role is in the natural scheme of things.

I find I spend a lot of time hunting down information on various insects. Having the information, pictures and feedback from members experiences in one location would be helpful.

Feel free to start a discussion of your own. The more informed we are as gardeners the better!

Use these SITES to help identify your insects.

That would be wonderful Lucinda :)

Just ask if you need help with anything.

We love that site Jeff :)

I find caterpillars hard to identify on it though.

If you hit "view all" in discussion I have a Tools and Sites discussion which I have featured but for some reason it doesn't show up on the home page. It should be right at the front but it refuses to co-operate.

Go ahead and start a discussion on any insects that interest you :)

Hey guys - I would suggest you have a look at this site, http://www.brisbaneinsects.com as I have found it very useful for identifying insects in my garden.
