DannyDrummond's blog: Pests!

Posted on Jul 26, 2021 2:15 PM

Friggin white flies!! Lol

They are everywhere and I know why. Nothing to eat them.

I love bugs. Always have. They are something I go out of my way to look for and something I noticed about Queens is...we don't have many. A ladybug is a rare sighting and what I need most right now. Lacewings? None to be seen. Honeybees? Good luck finding one. Earthworms? Very few.

To deal with the white flies I bought yellow sticky traps rather than use a pesticide. They have worked very well. They were completely covered in 24 hours. There is a drawback to using them though...they are not discriminate killers and the mantis I introduced last year made a bee line for them. Sighhhh.

Next spring I order ladybugs and lacewings.
