If your talking about that tiny bug that sticking part way off the edge of one leaf, it way to tiny for me to see what it is, but looks like it might be some leaffooted type of bug.

This is what I like to see. I did let a tomato horn worm munch away on one tomato plant as you could see the predator egg sac on it's back.

Kinda hard to see this little worm munching away on a snapdragon, but you can see the big white egg on it's back.

Sometimes, I don't kill all the worms munching and crunching away as you need to have them for the natural predators to come and lay their eggs and the larvae to have food to grow and develop to keep the pest populations down.

Hummmmmmm.. Interesting Cinda. I have some Tansy seed, guess I need to get it planted and try it as a mulch.

here an article some of you may find interesting.
