Slugs and snails are rated by many gardeners as the worst garden pests. Considering
their competition, this is a dubious honor. These pests are not insects but are mollusks
that are more closely related to shellfish, such as mussels and clams.

900 species of native bees reside in Utah. Some wild bees are superb pollinators of
Utah’s tree fruits, raspberries, squashes, melons and cucumbers. Few of our native
bees have much venom or any inclination to sting.

pests under control.
