Dammit Dammit Dammit !!!!!!!
Never Again !!!
Click Beetles are Very BAD !!!
I left a bunch of them on some one-year-old Tart Cherry trees 2 weeks ago, because they were jusy perched on leaf petioles, appearing to do absolutely nothing. 'Waiting for aphids to eat', I thought, maybe, and left them be. Well friends, last Saturday I went up to find those 8 trees seriously defoliated, 4 of which are plucked bald.
No more mister nice guy. No more words like 'probably, maybe, could, sometimes, usually, etc", describing an insect's habit. Unless it is a documented, proven carnivore and does not eat leaves, I will kill it. Maybe unless you live there, and have the time to count bugs on a daily basis. I don't. I need 2 weeks of 'get away from me' that I can spray on and have it work. So far, Permethrin wins that prize.
