Question of the Week – Silage Pit

Posted by romeethredge on September 25, 2015

Last week I had a photo of two ole timey silage pits. They were loaded by hand and packed by feet and then silage was removed later for feeding livestock by pulling it up with buckets and a pulley (aka tickle).


Here’s the view down into the pit. I’d hate to be thrown down there .  It reminds me of the story of Daniel in the lion’s den.


This week I have a question for you. What is this insect and what is it good for? It’s almost a half inch in length.
