I wanted to get some pictures together of the good guys working for us in our soils and on our plants. The beneficial bugs, insects, predators, etc. No real limit as to where these beneficials need to sit in the food web in regards to size, just so long as we can see 'em! If you got the tech to post up shots with a microscope, thats cool too! You don't necessarily need to know what they are, just be confident that they're doing good. Allowing nature to re balance itself is crucial to the fight against diseases/pests. Let's put the critters that make that possible in the spotlight!

These might would have been good pictures if those pesty pest wouldn't have been hanging around, feeding the beneficial insects. Wait a minute doesn't a pest become beneficial when it attracts predictors?

Thanks for posting, Paul. Those are great. Please keep posting if you are so inclined! I'll try to get some up myself as soon as it's feasible.

I've only got a few others that I've not took the time to ID yet so they might not be benificial, but still cool pictures IMO. The first two are about the size of a pencil lead.
