Yay for (good) bugs

Remember those bugs I was talking about? Well according to Native Nurseries, via my descriptions and then photos, those bugs are Assassin bug pupae. So any holes in the Silver Fir Tree's leaves aren't actually from those nasty looking bugs but are in fact from other bugs that the Assassin bugs are eating. They've reassured me twice now that these are good bugs, so I'm going to take their word for it. But I can't deny that I'm still a tiny bit nervous that somehow they'll turn out to be bad bugs and I'll regret having left them along so long because they'll have killed that plant. Sometimes you just can't help being a bit paranoid, even when you know your fears probably won't come true...
