Last year we had a very wet winter, with blizzard-like conditions, and this year our winter was dry and mild, kinda-like spring. So now that it is spring, we have had snow and rain for most days, go figure!
This last winter, though warm and dry, is the first in a while that we have not had any stink bugs come indoors...YEAH!
I have been recuperating from knee and shoulder surgery and the last couple of years have started back up gardening, as I was out of the loop for a couple of years, and boy was everything a mess!
Have you tried Neem oil? There are so many different organic solutions these days, compared to several years ago, it seems worthwhile to try them, would you not agree?
