The jap beattles hatched at my house this weekend. Before I could get the shrubs sprayed two families of purple crackles moved in and were gobbling them down like popcorn. I didn't think anything would eat those but they were.
I always had a suspicion that birds were eating some of our strawberries. Then this spring I was in the garden when 2 young robbins hopped out of the strawberry patch with red beaks and grins on their faces!:) Luckily we had a bumper crop this year so I didnt get too bent out of shape over it. I figure they probably eat enough bugs to make up for the damage.
