Thanks, Richard. I've got blue orchard bees less than 10 ft. from my
apple trees, and I was worried they might be attracted to anything red.
I should have apples for the first time this year (knock on wood), so
I'm not sure what pests I might encounter. I want to be prepared, but I
don't want to go overboard. I guess I'll just try to monitor things closely.
I like the idea of the homemade sticky spheres, though.

policy, even in the face of massive and well-understood evidence to the
contrary, seems to many Americans to have reached levels that were
previously unimaginable. - Al Gore
