fortunately i check everything 2-3 times a day so they really dont get to good a hold but what is going on this year? I found 3 different kinds of caterpillar feasting 2day(only had 1 in past years). found slugs(never been a problem before). found 1 ant herding 3 aphids( never noticed them in past years). time to get nasty on the little futters. Im going to my pool store and getting a huge bag of DE and sprinkling it all around the bases. Then to the nursery and getting something to make the leaves taste nasty(and lethal) oh yes the war is on.
