re: how to prep crawfish for peeling? - CrawDude on 4/5/20 at 12:07 am
Commercial processors wash live crawfish, then boil or steam in un-seasoned water, then peel. I can’t tell you minutes off the top of my head as each operation is different. You can par-boil shortly as the other poster said, or just use the time you prefer for a normal seasoned boil such that...

[quote]I went ahead and checked the bottoms and while I did not see any insects, the were a very white fuzz.

re: Keeping St Aug out of Centipede - CrawDude on 4/4/20 at 8:45 am
Try sethoxydim sold under brand names (Fertilome Over the Top 11, Bonide Weed Beater, Hi Yield Grass Killer, etc). Needs to be mixed with oil concentrate. Will likely require multiple applications and expect some temporary yellowing of the centipede following application. Used widely to kill...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

re: Advice for fungus - CrawDude on 4/3/20 at 9:39 pm
I like to use a systemic insecticide for activities where if is difficult to spray, particularly the undersides of leaves. I personally use imidachloprid, b/c I can use on it on multiple trees and shrubs as a soil drench. This is what I’m currently using [link=(https://www.domyown.com/dominion-2l-...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Advice for fungus - CrawDude on 4/3/20 at 7:53 pm
[quote]You need to check the underside of the leaf. It looks like it has a scale infestation that would cause the sasanqua to slowly decline in health. It can cause stem dieback and eventually affect the health of the whole plant[/quote] Good advice - looking at my one taller sasanqua earlier today...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
re: Have You Had Success Growing Hydrangeas? - CrawDude on 4/3/20 at 7:36 pm

I buy mine at Plant Tech on Jefferson Hwy and Baringer-Foreman. By it by the yard, $35. They can deliver, but the fee is the same whether you by 1 yard or 10 yards - so if you have it delivered buy enough to make it worth it.
