Good Stuff Petee, Thanks for posting those Great tips. I notice a lot of Animals/insects/birds That you just dont see anymore. Pine Grosbeaks,Barn Swallows, Those little green snakes, Black Crickets, Grasshoppers.......etc. I think it has a lot to do with our obsession with Chemicals and Nicely kept lawns. Not to mention we all cut to much Grass and to often, I read somewhere that Dandelions are the 1st flowers that attract bees in spring and yet Folks consider them weeds and spray to prevent them.
Im 62 but I remember back in 5th grade giving a Speech about the importance of bees or lack of to our Agriculture. Hmmm, I must be smarter than I look .
