More Problems for Pests

It is amazing what you will see if you just slow your pace down a notch.  The following are good examples of natural insect control.  These are all from large row crop operations in both Taylor and Peach Counties
 Above is a Damsel Bug that has caught a three cornered alflafa hopper in soybeans
 A Robber Fly that has captured a moth
 This appears to be a caterpillar pest that was killed by a pathogneic fungus.  There are also viruses that kill insects. 
A Syrphid Fly larvae feeding on aphids.
I believe this is some sort of Flea Beetle, and it has an appetite for Pigweed all over Middle Georgia.
