Tansy Beetle Time – Well Almost

In preparing for Tansy Beetle time we’ve taken to heart a suggestion by a member of the Natural England Field Unit that visited a few weeks ago and purchased this clever little device, a 4 in 1 soil survey instrument, that reads the temperature, pH, sunlight and moisture of the soil it is inserted into. Thus, when counting and observing Tansy Beetles we have the opportunity to add some possibly relevant data to the record.  We’re looking forward to using this in March when we observe the first Tansy Beetles making their way from below ground. Thank you Santa, and thank you Natural England for the idea!
