neem oil II
we got a bit more than half an inch of badly needed rain last night and that pretty much did in the neem oil i sprayed before the rain...so after work today i went out and had a look...a dismaying find...loners and congregations of japanese beetles on the grape leaves in the fir tree...so i doused the leaves and the beetles with another coating of oil...it is clear that i will need to drag a ladder out of the basement and get as high into the vines in the catalpa tree as i can to try to manage this outbreak
it may be time to invest in a more powerful sprayer.
an industrial worker and university student (everyone needs a hobby...my hobbies have evolved and, to keep things straight, i have left my formal student career behind for reasons that are too detailed to delve into here...continuing to be a student of life however and not adverse to learning...stasis is death ) sliding down the back side of middle age...a social loner with collectivist leanings...explain that.
