So tonight i looked through my two cascade hops plants. I found a few baby praying mantis's and a few spiders, so that's cool. However I found some things I'm not sure of. I found a few small katydids. I've researched a little and get conflicting info on whether they will do more harm than good. Any insight?
Also I found some of these little buggers. Not sure what they are, but they look like they're carrying little pieces of cotton around, most likely some sort of web for eggs. Any insight here? I'm thinking about capturing the praying mantis's and keeping them alive, spraying with insecticide tomorrow and moving forward. Good idea or bad idea in your opinion? FYI I'm in Central Ohio.
