State parks are a fabulous place for insects. Here in their natural environment they are no longer pests but objects of fascination for park visitors. Without danger of pesticides found elsewhere they are free to feed and develop as nature intended contributing to their ecosystem.
State Parks are wildlife sinks and Texas has some of the best in the Nation. Budget constraints have closed some State Parks and threatens others. Visit your State’s parks so that legislators know how much you appreciate them.
