Welcome! This month brings two anniversaries...one to celebrate, and one I wish I could forget. You'll also find an April newsletter extra: a bonus mini-eBook!
Very informative hope these bugs decide to bug someone else!
I don't have too crazy bug stories, but last summer, while out and about in the garden and heard a loud buzz and the sky sort of darkened and suddenly there were thousands of bees near me. I froze for a second then I ran fast to the shed, where I realized I am still not far enough so I ran to the house. They did not care about me, I guess it was just a swarm moving from one place to the other. But it was quite a scary experience...
I'm drawn to horror stories of this type-- literally shivers of dread through me as you describe having to cut off and burn parts of your fruit trees. We're several years in to our own little "farm in our garden" and I really stink at pest control so far-- thanks for sharing so others can learn from your experiences!
