    I'm new to gardening. I have a raised garden that I planted about two weeks ago and today I found a bunch of bugs on my plants. Can anyone help me identify them? What is the best way to get rid of them? I've included a picture, hopefully it turns out (my first time posting, apologies in advance if it doesn't [​IMG] ).

    Thank you!!

    Hi & welcome! Your pic is pretty good, but not a critter I recognize. Do they seem to be dwelling in the soil, or doing something to the plants?

    Whereabouts are you Stlaa? It will help us to ID the insect for you if we know where you live.
