I found this bug in the garden today, on my rainbow chard:
I couldn’t find it on my laminated chart of common bugs in my area (harmful or beneficial). Any idea what it might be?
Also, if anyone can recommend a good way to deal with hundreds of ants near a vegetable garden (where “good” involves not poisoning the people who will be eating the vegetables or the beneficial bugs, not setting things on fire, etc.), I would be thrilled to hear it.
