So when I was happily shooting photos on my newfound gaura, I spotted these blasted coreopsis beetles. They were lurking under leaf debris. Which is what they do until they emerge, scatter and attack coreopsis plants. I despise them. We had an infestation of them in 2012. I hate to kill things, but I WILL kill coreopsis beetles.
Likewise, I decimate most (non-native) milk snails that I find because I do NOT want an infestation of them in our gardens. I've seen photos of infestations. I do not want our gardens to look like photos I've seen of infested gardens and yards.
