A To Z Challenge: B is for Bugs

In case you haven't heard, I'm taking part in the 2018 Blogging from A to Z Challenge! I published my first post yesterday, with A if for Astronaut—you can read it here, if you missed it. And, if you've forgotten my theme, check out that post here.

Remember, read each post to see how you can WIN a FULL set of the Superman Duffy graphic novels—16 books, plus 7 in French, if you want. Signed by the author!

B is for Bugs

Spring may be taking a while to get here—at least where I live in Alberta—but before we know it, gardens will be in the ground and we'll all be complaining about...


Well, at least some of them. Like mosquitoes. *shudder* (I'm really not a fan!) And when that fruit fly is buzzing around your watermelon, I get that it's easy to swat it away like the pest that is it. But not all bugs are pests—especially to crop farmers.

You probably think I know all about bugs because my grandpa is a canola producer, but actually, it's because my sister, Amelia, is a junior entomologist—aka a bug "expert." (At least, she likes to think she is...)

I have to admit, in the Superman Duffy graphic novel, AMELIA (yes, it's named after her <eye roll>), my sister does teach us a lot about bugs—the ones that are pests and can be damaging to crops, and the ones that are very important to plant growth.

To learn more, you can order AMELIA from the Alberta Canola Producers Commission website—that's the book, not my sister, just to be clear. (But hey, I'll take bids on her too, ha ha!)

Gotta jet! Check back tomorrow for the letter "C"—plus, your first chance to WIN a full set of the Superman Duffy graphic novels!

Have a happy Easter Monday.
