  • Weird Growths on Trees? You’ve Got Galls!
    Most of the abnormal growths I am seeing are galls created by egg laying or feeding insects and mites.
  • Wilting Squash? Be on the Lookout for Squash Vine Borer!
    Beginning in late June or early July, squash vine borer adults emerge from cocoons in the ground. Soon after emerging, they lay eggs at the base of susceptible plants. About one week after they are laid, the eggs hatch and the larvae bore into stems to feed, blocking the flow of water to the rest of the plant.
  • Bugged by Ants?
    Dealing with ants can be very frustrating. The first step in implementing an ant management program in your home is to learn what type of ant you are trying to remove.
