TUESDAY INFOGRAPHIC: Spring means Flowers, Warmer Weather and Pests!
infographic from orkin.com
My gardening 6th sense is tingling these days in the Midwest. I think Spring is coming early. My daffodils are 2 inches out of the ground, and that means business!
That also means that the warmer it gets, the earlier things get hatching under ground. And I, for one, hate grubs and slugs. They trash my garden and lawn. Grubs will hatch the minute is gets up to 60˚F. Once they run rampant in your yard, they are hard to control. So in honor of the slightly warmer weather where I am at, I am sharing this great infographic on pests according to areas of the USA.
This is to not gross you out (although my daughter was quite upset I put this up on the blog, she hates bugs...worms to be exact). I hope to motivate you as well me to get on top of our yards sooner rather than later. The earlier you get on top of Spring yard care, the sooner you can enjoy a mint julep sitting in it!
