Spring has been so cold the bugs are still sleeping. I don't even see the flea beetle on the radishes -YET.

Lucky you - that your bugs are still sleeping.

Here in Carleton Place area, we have been plagued by black flies, mosquitos, and shad flies by the hundreds for the past 2-3 weeks. In addition, I have been averaging 2 caterpiller nests per week in my Shubert Chokecherry.

Now I am just waiting for those darling earwigs! Since we had so much snow and the ground didn't freeze, I imagine they will be abundant!!

The earwigs lie low until my clematis vines are in full bloom - then they swarm the flowers and leave them full of holes! It's usually the second week of bloom which would be about the end of June or early July. I set traps for them but there are just too many to control.

Ohhh no!!!!!!Red lily beetle is a dirty word. If you don't see em , don't look for em and least of all don't even whisper their name. Stand on guard with the potato dust. Edie

What a difference a couple of days makes!
Blech! Have found a couple of red lily beetles. I regret to have to inform you that they died a very quick death!
We've sprayed with the soluble Rotonone, (Potato Dust), and are doing a daily inspection.
My next-door-neighbour also has found some, and is dusting with the potato dust, as well as picking them off and squishing!
I was hoping to add more lilies to our collection, but have decided against it!
