April 2010

The first quarter of the year has proved interesting and unusual – cold, then cool, then hot. They say a cool spell coming later this week. Where is spring? The plants are behind, and when they bloom, flowers are everywhere. That will put the bees behind. And when something blooms, they flock to it and almost look like swarms. Remind callers that the bees are only gathering the nectar or pollen or both from these plants and will go away when the bloom stops. Many other insects are beginning to appear, and some are not wanted.

Bugs for April include:

  • Carpenter Bees
  • Pecan Phylloxera
  • June Bugs
  • Mole crickets
  • Colorado potato beetle
  • Deer and horse flies
  • Eastern and forest tent caterpillars
  • Fall web worms
  • Southern red mites
