Re: June Beetle or Humming Bird Moth

Hello ScientistMel - the ones I have been describing are the brown night variety.
Don't get me wrong - I do not want to decimate every insect in sight - just do a bit of thinning out. Part of my garden is a "wild reserve" - so they are more than welcome to eek out their life cycle there. Once my hedge begins to mature a little more then I will leave them alone.

I wish I could do a job like yours - it sounds much more full-filling than sitting behind my computer looking after other peoples endless database problems.
Insect control must be a subject where you can actually see quantify-able results and your customers really appreciate your efforts. It is just the Latin which would cause me a problem.
The investigation and experimental elements of your work would really appeal to me.
Since I have had my garden, my whole perspective on (pond) life has altered.
I think there will be many more insect/garden related posts in the future. I have already written something about cockroaches
