Absolutely. There is a lot to learn about the little buggers.
I made the comment because it has been suggested that they escape and eat your berries, or prize petunias, because they lack some particular nutrients in their “regular” feed.
I don’t believe they wander about, saying,”You know, we’re lacking certain nutrients in the feed around around here, so when I bust out, I’m heading straight for the strawberries….”
The reality is they grab what they find, first, be it berries or begonias.
