9.27.2021: Google very recently changed drive links for security reasons, so you may find that when you click on a link for one of my printables that you need to submit a share request. PLEASE only submit one share request per item! These have to be manually confirmed and I will get to them when I get to them. I promise you that sending me 12 requests in rapid succession will not make that happen faster, lol! I do not sit on my computer waiting around to send people instant shares of freebies. Thank you so much for your patience as I try to sort out this latest Google mess.

Meet Fred!

 

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

004

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?
