Saturdays find us at the KTAR studios and broadcasting the Garden Hour of the Rosie On The House Show at 8am Tune in to 92.3 for a listen! There is always a weekly tip and for this week it is “whitefly”. Well these bugs are sure white, but they’re not whitefly. We have noticed a big surge in mealybugs the past week or two,especially if you have hibiscus. This picture was take this morning after a pretty good rain and there is still quite a good population. So if you have hibiscus check for this white bug and white fly! Systemic granules, spinosad, or malathion all will take care of either of these pesky critters! See ya on the airwaves and Good Growin’.
