Wednesday, it was hot (~80F) and dry and lots of sunlight, so perfect for spraying my hordes of weeds with vinegar. I put six gallons down.
Well, now, up from the depths of a weeds canopy comes lumbering up, off all things, a squash bug. He is now deceased (death by shoe).
Here is the fun part, I don't even plant my squash seeds until the third week in May. Maybe the rest of them will starve to death in the mean time?
death to squash bugs death to earwigs death to weeds
Oh, ya, he was probably an over winter bug, so not much change a few more weeks will stave them. And it is cool again, so their metabolisms will probably shut down again.
