Cucumber Beetles

Cucumber beetles chew holes in your plant leaves.  They can quickly consume your precious cucumber, melon, and squash plants.  Cucumber beetles can also transmit diseases like bacterial wilt and cucumber mosaic virus. Control your beetle damage by spraying with organic Neem Oil regularly every 7-10 days.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Water Damage on Plants:

Wet weather makes many beautiful blossoms turn brown and mushy….Simply snap the water damaged blossoms and yellow leaves off, allow plant to dry and fertilize for more blooms to come.

This wet weather also brings grey mold to our recently planted begonias and geraniums. Too much moisture and lack of air flow are a perfect storm for the grey mold (nasty) to appear. Best practice is to pick out the moldy areas and air them out as best as you can when the sun comes back out.
