Grubby Tuesday

Things are heating up in the garden, especially the Japanese Beetles. These flying buggers are munching on just about everything. We are coming up to the sweet spot for controlling Japanese Beetles and other grubs that live in your lawn. Here’s a quick article  that gives you the Grubs 101 - everything you need to know about grubs. So don’t ignore the best time of the year to treat for these grubbies. Diagnosis is important. There are tests out there determining how many grubs per square foot is considered acceptable and when it is deemed an infestation and should be treated. Although I don’t like chemicals, this is the one insect that can raise havoc on your lawn, especially during hot, dry summers. I’ll wrap up this grubby Tuesday post with a Bill Vaughan quote. “We hope that, when the insects take over the world, they will remember with gratitude how we took them along on all our picnics.” And how they always managed to show up in the garden pictures, too!
