The insect life of Foxhill Farm should soon respond to the conditions and a number of interesting insects including the parasitic fly Phasia obesa were found. Dock Bugs, Coreus marginatus, were evident before the rain as docks, with their deep tap roots were only marginally affected by the drought.
Dock bugs are not technically shieldbugs but are generally treated as such.
