Toying with nature at year’s end

I was very sad one day to find my mint plants infected with what i thought were Aphids (they turned out to be White flies) so after a bunch of online research (obviously not thorough enough) i discovered that the best way to deal with the tiny life form was to get a slightly larger life form to eat it. Now after a half seconds thought about playing Mother Nature i decided that all steps must be taken to save the plants… this is my mint were talking about here! So I ordered a 100 Ladybugs over the Internet and they showed up at my door in the middle of a metropolis in the middle of winter (try explaining that to someone 50 years ago) so much fun was had by all…. the Ladybugs didn’t care for the white flies much….the mint died….the ladybugs died… most of the white flies died…. i somehow survived although i fear i might have a little karmic debt to pay.
