Grandpa wants to end five-year debate: Is it a flower or a weed? - Belleville News-DemocratTuesday, June 20, 2017
In our area, there can be two generations a year. These insects are particularly troublesome in the Mississippi River Valley, where we are located. These insects usually are not that big of a problem, unless large numbers build up. Things to do this weekAfter all the rain we had earlier this spring, the soil is very dry. Check to see if your plants need to be watered, as you may notice some of them beginning to wilt. This will limit flower production as well as fruit and produce production.As the water begins to dry up, you may notice more animal damage. http://www.bnd.com/living/magazine/article156308839.html
