Tour Your Yard for Pests
May 1 - May 31
Be on the look-out for any pests that might be enjoying your plants. Check flowering cherries and crabapples for tent caterpillars (look for webs in the crotch of branches). Take a garden hose and hose them out or pull them out with your hands. Check pines for sawfly larva that eat the needles.
Remember most insects are beneficial and don’t need control.
