Unwanted insects arrive at the Farm

Squash Borers and Kudzu Bugs have been spotted at the Farm in the past few days.  Protect your squash/zucchini/pumpkin vines against this dreaded vine borer. Cucumbers are lest affected.

The Kudzu Bug kills your legumes/beans/peas by eating the vines (not the legumes themselves) and the whole plant withers and dies.

Check out the pictures of these insects and the eggs they lay – and other insects as well – under the “Education” tab…Insects Seen at the Farm.

One of the best ways to keep a bug infestation from your plot is to clear out the weeds picked and get rid of any decayed or dead plant material!

Stay vigilant and plant some Nasturiums!
