Summer is in full swing, and with the new season comes the expectation that insects of all sorts will visit your backyard or outdoor gardens. Some of these visitors are welcome – for instance, butterflies and bees create a lovely atmosphere that not only celebrates summer, but is important to our ecosystem.
