Nobody wants to think about bugs, especially when eating. Unfortunately, these creatures are part of the natural world. They have a role to play in plant growing. Some of them spread pollen from plant to plant. Others irrigate the soil. Eliminating useful bugs is a big mistake. Plants will not grow as well without them. There are also bugs that are not useful to plant growth. They eat the fruit and leaves before moving on to the next plant. These bugs will damage or destroy a tomato plant. There are organic pesticides on the market today to control these pests. Using them is acceptable when they are naturally occurring products.
