So due to the very warm weather we had this past winter, bonsai vermin have been out and ravaging my garden. Already I’ve had tons of aphids, caterpillars, and now spider mites! FML…SMH. For the past 3-4 weeks I’ve been attempting to fend off these vermin with Neem Oil, BT, spinosoaid, insecticidal soap, vinegar, hydrogen peroxide and more. For the past 3 were rainy and warm… Now I’m dealing with fungus on weakened trees, Gawd! I’m resorting to malathion bombing my trees. Going to use 1/2 oz per gallon and assess. I don’t like the idea of organophosphates but I cant continue to let my plants be ravaged by these vermin.
Just a ranting. May the rest of you have a pest free growing season.
