    Photo from today (June 24th) in White Rock BC

    Some of our daisies with stems a meter tall and lovely buds are getting the nectar sucked out by what I think to be a variety of earwig(?)

    Well Ron B now we really got my wife upset :) because she killed it after I took the photo. She just ran out in the twilight to see if there are any more because we love ladybugs and yes they do a good job of keeping aphids in check.

    So they're not at fault for our sad looking/a little dried up and hanging daisy buds but they're eating those responsible? Ya learn something new everyday and thanks for that!
