Your letter to the bugman: Dear Bugman,
While tending to my plants, I searched for the small California Mantis that had been there several weeks, but couldn’t find it. I did notice what appeared to be the same Green Lynx Spider I saw earlier in the month had returned. It is really shy and as I moved in with the camera, it hid under the leaves. It is really difficult to find it when it is hiding. I observed it eating a small fly and I noticed a second Green Lynx nearby on another branch. It is so fascinating that the same predators are appearing again this year. I had several Green Lynx Spiders on my plants last summer.

Dear Constant Gardener,
Green Lynx Spiders are frequently found on blossoms where they capture pollinating insects. Hopefully these predators will keep your plants free from marauding insects.
