re: Not so subtle brag thread - BFIV
Yep, and bumblebees, yellow jackets, and hornets are considerable faster than a John Deere 5065E. (or an old M-F 50, too!) :lol:...

Nice rig! Now you ain't lived til you get into some old rusty barb wire or a yellow jacket/hornet nest with that bush hog. And it will happen! Been there, done that, too! :cheers:...

re: Carpenter bee trap - BFIV
I put out three of these. Ordered em from Amazon for 10 bucks each without the attractant, or you can get em from Lowes for about 12 bucks each. I used my own attractant recipe: 1 part apple cider vinegar to 1 part of sugar water solution (1/2 cup of sugar to 1 cup of water) and ONE drop of Daw...

re: Carpenter bee trap - BFIV
Been gonna build one of these for a week now. Maybe tomorrow if I don't forget...again. It's been kind of cool here this week, though, and they've slowed down a little bit . On a side note, my yellowjacket queen trap is working. Caught another big queen today using vinegar/sugar water solution for...

Tornadoes down there? - BFIV
Been watching this system develop and it looks like some of yall may get slammed? Supposed to be here late tomorrow afternoon or evening. They're predicting baseball size hail for some parts of our region. I guess I'll be moving the other vehicles into the barn before that happens. I've never ex...

[quote]I just plant about 10 times more than I need[/quote] This will work, but it's a two edged sword. The more plants you have, the more vine borers and squash bugs you have in your area and overwinter in the ground each year. ...

Go ahead and just discard any of your current post bloom fruits. Count the days from your application and you will be just fine. You can spray the eggs with water/Dawn solution right now and kill the eggs. That's labor intensive, though, but it works....

re: Prepare for battle. Squash borers have arrived! - BFIV
You can also use organic control to mitigate squash vine borers. One way is to take a shallow pan, paint it yellow and fill it with water/Dawn solution. The yellow attracts the squash vine borer adult flies and they drown in the solution. ...

Here's the stuff I used for vine borers. It works, but follow the application and harvest instructions.[link=(http://www.ipm.iastate.edu/ipm/hortnews/2012/3-21/imidacloprid.html)]LINK[/link]...

re: Prepare for battle. Squash borers have arrived! - BFIV
Sevin won't touch em. You have to use a systemic pesticide to kill them. The larvae live inside the stems and eat their way through it, killing the plant. External pesticide applications have little to no effect on them, unless you spray regularly around the base of the plant to kill the adults b...
