You are much appreciated, Moni! Thanks for all the good information.

can't wait!
by: mary

I just joined this group and actually just joined the whole internet life. I looked around to find things that I enjoy. Cooking was first simply because of the alphabet, but I certainly knew that gardening would be next.
I joined late in the year so I'm really really looking forward to 2011 and you folks!

by: Christa

Dear Moni,
I want to join the many
people who offered their 'Thank you' for the tremendous effort you put in, using your 'spare time' to inform us, who have no clue about the 'bug life'.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Enjoy this special time of year with family and friends. Best wishes for a healthy and happy 2011.

by: Marie

Thank you Moni for a job well done.

by: Lorraine

We all thank you Moni. And isn't it fun to find the answer to callers questions. Especially the folks that have been around for a while. As a UC Lifetime Master Gardener I love to listen to the farmers here in California tell me how they handle different problems. Most of them NOT in the books.
Keep up the good work.

Thank you Moni
by: Ms. P R Taylor

Moni, I have not posted a quesiton, yet if Doug says you merit an extra comment, I believe him. So, I send this special note of gratitude and best wishes.

Thank you for your advice on handling squash vine borers.

by: Jeanette

Thank you for looking into what the insects on my picture where. I can't imagine what you must go trough to figure out what they are. I know it's not easy, or I would have figured it out myself. So, kudos to you! For keeping us aware of what these amazing creatures are.

Thank you
by: Elizabeth

Thank you for tirelessly helping those of us who aren't insect savvy! While I admire and appreciate most of the insects in my garden, I know I scratch my head about most of them and am always curious. Thank you again for helping out and satisfying my curiosity. Learning is a lifetime passion of mine.

thank you Moni, for your love of insects!
by: Renate

I have not sent a photo for identification, but I have read through a lot of the identifications, and I really appreciate your knowledge, insight and passion for insects, Moni. I thank you for sharing that, and for encouraging people not to kill insects -- to catch them indoors and take them outside, for example. Insects are beautiful and they play important and critical roles that support life as we know it on this planet. We need to learn that and remember that as we go about our daily lives. Thank you again, Moni.
