Problems in the Garden
This week Buggy Joe Boggs (OSU Extension) is reporting the ‘big cats’ showing up (giant silkworm caterpillars, hornworms, hickory horned devils and many other butterfly and moth caterpillars) as they always do (so big they scare the heck out of you!) and to leave them alone (damages are minimal and we want these around), many trees yellowing and bronzing (due to stress, insects, mites, disease, etc) and besides watering if needed, not much you can do at this point as the damages are done for this year, fall webworms and bagworms reports all around, honeylocust trees bronzing, yellowing and dropping leaves (Imprelis damages, root diseases, cankers on trunks, borers, spider mites, stress), Calico scale crawlers active on honeylocust (and a few other deciduous trees), and a reminder that now is the time for turf renovations.
Catch The Buggy Joe Boggs Report Saturdays at 8:42am on 55KRC The Talk Station. You’ll also find his blog at www.ronwilsononline.com.
