1st time poster - dinna beat me up!
Ok, so I have about 10 nice sized hosta's in the back garden but they
are looking pretty ragged. I reckon the gypsy moth larvae are going to
lunch on them. Any recommendation for a bug spray that will repel or
kill them and not kill the plant?
I also have many squirrels and chipmunks attacking my bird feeders and
while quite comical, they are getting pretty aggressive now.
BB Gun? Maybe a .22 to show who's boss...
Any help is appreciated!
I have dropped them off on the grounds of a corporation I was pissed off
at - and I have shot them in the trap which was safer than have a .22
ricochet toward the nearest house (about 800' away). I can tell you they
are tough little buggers and a .22 in the ass is not going to stop them &
you can forget the pellet gun.
No, sorry for the confusion. Wat I meant was the deer will eat plants
like yews and arbovitae in the winter, but they leave them alone in the
summer, when other plants they like more, like the hostas are around.
Deer love yews more than any other plant. I got rid of the few I had because
they were an attraction and an or'dourve for the azaleas and rhodies. The
hostas are planted closer to the house in an attempt to protect them. So far
so good. That stinky, expensive deer repellant seems to work-on most plants.
