Love in the Bean Field
Love is where you find it.
And sometimes you find it in a bean field.
Take the UC Dry Bean Field Day on Sept. 5 at UC Davis. As researchers, growers, UC Cooperative Extension personnel, industry representatives and other interested personnel fanned out in the bean fields west of the central campus, they may not have noticed the red among the green.
Two lady beetles, aka ladybugs, were doing what comes naturally.
We need more beneficial insects!
