HELP!!!!!!! Something is eating the petals of my petunias in my window
boxes. I cannot see what it is but I can tell you my flowers look terrible.
Then off to my roses. I just planted them last week and already the ants
have drilled holes into the stems. These are the stems that were trimmed
last fall however I am fearful the whole rose bush will be next. Any help
you folks have will be appreciated greatly. Thank you, Betty
As I said, this is the work of twig boring wasps. They eat their way
into the cane and lay their eggs in it. I've watched them do it. BT
is useless against
Sealing the end of the newly cut cane with Elmer's glue will deter
them, so will carbolated vaseline. (it's available at any drugstore.)
