Thripes Do you just live with them or try to get rid of them?
Stupid annoying thripes!!!!! Ugh I hate them!!!!!
They seem to be really bad this year. Spring flush was beautiful but they have now taken over and I still have or shall I say had so many blooms left. I went and dead headed most of what was left including many buds that I could see looked infested with them.
I even used Bayer liquid 3 in 1 in Feb. (before the buds budded) but that didn't seem to do anything. I tried the oil spray but I don't know how often I should keep doing it or if it really even works to get rid of them. I bought 1 bottle by Bayer to try but one bottle was hardly enough, I would need to use my 1 gal. sprayer if it is even worth it.
What do you do? Do you just say oh the heck with it and what will be will be and just live with them? ~Meghan
