I didn't want to hijack the other thread and I suddenly noticed this problem the last couple of days with my container plants. Soil bugs! They are only a problem in my hugelkultur containers. Some are eating the roots and some are eating the plants. It has been about 8 months since I have been using the technique and I can't go outside to see how my mini hugel beds are because we had a snow storm. Do you see an increase in soil bugs with your hugelkultur beds?
