  Ugg...Slugs
Posted by: auctionheir - 02-02-2011, 08:20 PM - Forum: Pests - Replies (5)

I have been trying to rid my flower beds, garden and now even my LAWN of those slimy slugs...I've removed the wood mulch I thought was protecting them, they're still so thick. The pan of beer is also a joke, maybe works if you have a few on a plant or two. These crawl up and over the water pan I put under the cat's food dish *to keep the ants out* and still get in the food and back out. HELP!

  Japanese Beetle Control
Posted by: ThePepperSeed - 12-31-2010, 12:10 PM - Forum: Pests - Replies (1)

Here's a link to a USDA pamphlet (PDF) on Managing the Japanese Beetle: A Homeowner's Handbook. It includes methods on how to survey the Japanese beetle population in your yard; chemical, cultural, biological and mechanical controls; and lists of plants that are more susceptible and more resistant to Japanese beetle feeding. One thing they do bring up is that the Japanese beetle is here to stay, so complete eradication will not be possible. Instead, homeowners should seek to manage these beetle populations while exerting minimal impact on their environment.

Is composting weeds ok or should you have a separate compost pile just for weeds?

  cleaning wall o water towers
Posted by: lindabf - 12-26-2010, 10:16 PM - Forum: Gardening - Replies (2)

If the insides need to be scrubbed, maybe try duct taping a baby bottle brush to a longer dowel? Also, they might make brushes for cleaning out your dryer vent (available at the home improvement center), but they might be too large &/or pokey.

I live in Eastern Montana..Zone 3/4. Do you think they'd grow here? I'd love to try some, a neighbor graciously donated some butterfly weed last year, and we already had 2 monarchs [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img].
