a plethora of pests

Now I can add to the heretofore mentioned list of varmints eating their way through my plantings Japanese Beetles and little reddish brown moths. Both are so plentiful around here that you bump into them just walking down the driveway to get the mail. They careen into your legs, land on your head. You unknowingly bring them into the house and then have to chase after then with the dollar-store flyswatter. Yuck. Yuck. And more yuck!!

  1. I also have the yukky Japanese beetles, making lace out of my grape leaves (I don’t use poison, and have been less than proactive). I’ve also got cabbage worms and moths on my brussels sprouts. I cleaned them off once, but guess what — they’re back!
