In this talk, I try to challenge the perception that many of us gardeners have when it comes to insects. For example, slugs are hated because they nibble on seedlings and plants, but did you know that the Leopard slug is actually more of a friend as it eats other pests? I also talk about the importance of pollination in the garden, and on how you can, with simple actions, make you garden more friendly to insects.
