It seems like this year has been particularly buggy. My broccoli is full of cabbage worms and I think my butternut squash is yet again victim to squash vine borers. What pests are troubling you so far this season? Have you been successful with any natural pest control strategies? Do share!

I am seeing a lot of those stink bugs also - and yes, everything seems "buggier" than usual this year. My apple trees have been hit especially hard by something I haven't identified yet.

Last year it was the "June" bugs that were so bad and when they land on you they hurt because they dig into you

I don't know about you guys, but we have 2 season of lovebugs and the only thing that will eat them is the chickens

So far this season my only pest is Japanese beetles but that could change at anytime.

When we performed Pest Inspection in our garden we came to know that there were termites and small black worms all over our backyard.

A cocker spaniel who slips through the lattice fence and thinks our yard is his. He makes starting a garden difficult.

There are a ton of things homeowners have to watch out for that will destroy a home, but nothing quite does it like a mildew variety called poria incrassata. It's an especially vicious type of dry rot and it can literally eat a house out from under one's feet. Article resource: shouldn't you find out more about our website?
