New insect pest ID added

by Leslie Cox; Wednesday; February 26, 2020

A new insect pest identification about whiteflies has been added to Insects We Have Found under the In the Garden heading on the menu bar.

This is just a general exposé on whiteflies with a rough description of their life cycle. Unfortunately, there are over 1500 species of whiteflies and many of them have not been studied, written about or even photographed.

Hopefully, you will find some useful information in this description on how to deal with them.


Note: I am still having problems with the latest pest insect IDs to be added not showing up on the list. Have not figured out the problem yet. Now seeking some tech help.

In the meantime, use the Search box and type in “whitefly” to get to the right page. And if you check the Category box for Pest listings, you will find the other species which are not showing up on the list. Sorry for this inconvenience.

Teaser Tuesday

by Leslie Cox; Tuesday; February 25, 2020

A peek into a tidal pool at Chesterman Beach revealed some wonderful marine creatures. Chiefly, it was the enormous size of the anemones which caught my eye. They are positively the biggest ones I have ever seen…and I have looked into lots of tidal pools. I certainly get why it has the name Giant Green Anemone.

Note: Chesterman Beach is on the west coast of Vancouver Island…on the way to Tofino.
