Insects have gone crazy the last week. If you
have been reading the Gardening Hints FBook site
there has been a continual list going on. Here is
just a partial list of insects to be aware of that have
"invaded" other gardens so far:
large and small ant flights
termite flights Ants and termite have flights
twice a year, spring and fall.
radish maggot - radishes
bill bugs - radishes
asparagus beetles - asparagus plants
First flight of codling moths attacking apples and pears
is 21 days after full apple and pear bloom, which is right
about now. Place store pheromone or home made
pheromone in the orchard ASAP.
