Meet Fred!

 

Fred is a False Potato Beetle Larva.  He’s a creature that’s known for what he is not (poor Fred).

Fred is one of nature’s wonders we discovered in our own backyard.  Some close observation (and Mama’s Google Fu) taught us what he is and we’ll spend some time getting to know him better.  Turns out that some of Fred’s favorite food grows in our backyard and that he’s not technically a pest (he eats weeds that nobody’s trying to cultivate).  Want to learn about False Potato Beetles?
