- Pest Scouting, What to watch for:
Eastern tent caterpillars are active now. If they are in desirable trees on your property that you can reach with a broom handle or stick, just disturb and remove the webbing of the nest. The caterpillars typically feed during daytime hours, so they are apt to be in the nest in the early morning or late in the day at dusk. You can use B.t. or Fertilome Spinosad (please follow label directions and don't use any chemicals if it's windy!).
Aphids love all the new tender sweet growth coming out now. They are easy to see, small green or light brown insects covering new buds and leaves just munching and sucking away! Keep a bottle of "ready to
use" Safer Soap (organic) or other insecticide for easy access to spray those little buggers.
As the weather warms up more, keep watch for other problems. Weekly scouting can help you identify a problem early when its easier to treat. You can always bring samples (in a sealed bag or container please) of anything you have a concern about by the store for our staff to help you.
Plant on and Happy Gardening!
