Bugs on my plants
I signed up to this great site because I have heard this is where you go if you want to know.
I have two questions about two plants/shrubs.
My shrub (I've been told it is a Gardenia but I couldn't say either way) has these beetles eating it.see photo) I was wondering how to prevent this as they are eating my plant steadily. The most effective way would be best but I would prefer to stay away from any Monsanto products if I could.
My plant (A Gladiola) also has some nymphish looking bugs on it. As of yet they don't seem to be affecting the plant but as far as I know having bugs on your plant is not good.
Again any effective method of removing these bugs would be greatly welcome and the information provided would be much appreciated by my plants and myself.
I guess I can only submit one pic at a time so I will post the first pic here then remaining pics on subsequent posts.
Thanks in advance for the help.
