Bugs-Sluga and Ants (what are you seeing?)
What are people seeing so far this season?
Seems there was a spike in carpenter ants which I hadn't seen for about 6 years. Took a trip to HD and hopefully the bug guard has done the trick.
Also, looks like the slugs are breeding. I found a couple of large ones but alot of the little white "baby" types. I hope it won't be a repeat of 3-4 years ago when we had all of that rain in the summer and generally lost a whole growing season b/c everything rotted or got eaten by the buggers!
And finally, I killed 2 stink beetles, 1 in the house and 1 by the outside window. It may be one of those unforeseen benefits of having a very poor sense of smell, but I have no hesitation in squashing them. I have read there are a couple of chemical options being developed specifically for the stunk bug but they're not out on the market yet. Anyone have good luck with anything besides the squishing method?
