Added by Alain Martineau
General Description : Series of low-value definitives featuring beneficial insects, the second issue with such a theme. Series of 5 stamps.
They skitter, scamper, and sometimes sting; we call them bugs for our own reasons. But, as any veteran gardener will tell you, one person’s pest is another person’s helper.
All of these friendly insects, despite the sound of some of their names, are appreciated by farmers and gardeners alike. Featuring bright, almost luminescent colours,
Each of the insects featured is a wonder to watch at work in the garden.
Wildflower gardeners and farmers may appreciate the larvae of dogbane beetle for feasting on the milkweed plant’s roots.
