On this weeks Gardeners world we were informed that readers had written in about "Disgusting maggots". I think the writers in question should have been advised with strong emphasis that these would eventually become Hoverflies. These are commonly known as drone flies and like all hoverflies are beneficial to the gardener. How many have been fished out and discarded. To me, the insects that inhabit my garden are as interesting as my plants. I make the effort to learn about them. With the availability of information via the internet, if you have it, it is so easy.
