OK , today I found a small black bug on my decimated eggplants . About
maybe 3mm long , and several on most leaves - except the one where the
spider has set up shop . Also found a Colorado potato beetle on an eggplant
Something is eating the leaves on my peach tree , not sure what but
they're havin' a time of it .
Found a small green caterpillar on one of the apple trees , a few leaves
have been munched .
Found a small bug , cylindrical and about 5-6mm long with orange spots on
either side of it's "neck" and long antennae , not sure if it's a predator
or pest .
My plan for right now is to dust the affected plants with some DE , should
stop most pests . I surely don't want to get into using insecticides now ,
as I have a bee hive coming later this month . In fact , I'm not so sure I
should continue the DE after the bees arrive . I just know I need to get a
handle on this before it gets out of control .
