Kudzu Eggs seen today on our Bulletin Board…

These are immature kudzu eggs getting ready to hatch.  Their mother decided to attach them to the post of our bulletin board in Valley Crest Square.

Blake sprayed them with a plant-derived, naturally occuring insecticide-Pyrethrum.  It’s made from Chrysanthemum dried flower heads.

Fingers crossed they die overnight…if not,  this unlucky nest will be smashed dead with a 2×4 by 9am tomorrow!

Eggs seen in Skidaway Farms

Farmer: Stay vigilant!  If we don’t all keep after this infestation we’ll lose more than just the legumes…kudzu bugs were found on artichokes today as well! (5/19/12)
