Okay, I do understand that the wood bug is a great aerator for my gardens. However, I live on almost half an acre in White Rock and I cannot nearly kill by hand the amount of these bugs (and others) by hand, and I am not keen on using bottled pesticides in my organic gardens. I live around many trees, therefore have lots of shade and moist areas around here. I know that there are very knowledgable people out there who have had the same experiences and are hopefully willing to share what worked for them. Thank you in advance for your advice!
