In many parts of the country, it's time
to start scouting for bugs. Since many
hide underneath leaves, "turn over a
new leaf" and check.
Tapping a branch over a white index
card or junk mail envelope can reveal
many insects that are too timy to see
Before you reach for the spray can,
though, check out the good bugs at the
University of Idaho website.

And if you do find pests, you may want
to consider this new product from
Gardens Alive. I read about Surround in
the American Research Service bulletin.
This all-around pest control -- good
against mites, insects, and fungi--
sounds a little too good to be true, but
the reported results are positive. Very
little negative effect on beneficials
has been reported thus far.
