Japanese Beetle on a leaf
Japanese Beetles and Controlling Them
       Japanese Beetles are very destructive insects. As adults, they feed on over 300 species of plants and in the turf as grubs.
       Adults emerge in May through June depending on the area. They fly to a plant, feed, release a pheromone and mate. This pheromone attracts others, so numerous beetles will be found in a small area.
      After feeding occurs, the female flies to an area of turf and burrows down into the soil and lays 1 to 5 eggs. She re-emerges to feed, mate and lay eggs again. She repeats this until she has laid 40 to 60 eggs in a 6 to 8 week period.

Bagworm life cycle stages
Bagworms and Controlling Them
       A Bagworm is a perennial moth like insect that resides on a number of evergreen as well as junipers in its larva stage. It causes extensive damage to plants and trees.
     Bagworms winter over as eggs in the bag of the female from the year before. Therefore, your first measure of control can come by hand-picking all the bags from last year. These eggs hatch mid to late May through the end of June. Individual larvae drop from the bag on a strand of silk and either swing onto a branch or sail in the wind to another tree. Immediately upon landing, they build a silk-lined bag, often decorating it with bits of foliage. Larvae remain in the bag feeding, with only the head and thoracic segment extending out.
       They are very small when they hatch, as the larvae grows, the bag expands the protective bag to accommodate its size.

Million Pollinator Garden Challenge
Million Pollinator Garden Challenge -
       The Million Pollinator Garden Challenge is a campaign to register a million public and private gardens and landscapes to support pollinators.
       Pollinators are responsible for 1 out of 3 bites of food we take each day, and yet pollinators are at critical point in their own survival. Many reasons contribute to their recent decline. We know for certain, however, that more nectar and pollen sources provided by more flowering plants and trees will help improve their health and numbers. Increasing the number of pollinator-friendly gardens and landscapes will help revive the health of bees, butterflies, birds, bats and other pollinators across the country.
