PEST ALERT
With the heat come more nighttime feeding insects like earwigs which eat leaves in such a way they look like lace. Treat earwigs with Bug & Slug Killer, Captain Jack's Dead Bug Brew or Diatomaceous Earth .
Black vine weevils notch the leaf’s edges and leave little poo marks on the back sides of leaves. Treat weevils with Bonide Systemic Insect Killer or Captain Jack’s Dead Bug Brew. 
Spider Mites are on the rise and can be problematic with both evergreen and deciduous trees, shrubs and perennials. Treat with Neem Oil or hose off with a strong spray of water.
Because of the heat, our cool season lawns have slowed down in growth and are showing areas of brown caused by numerous reasons: not enough water, insects, fungus, fertilizer burn, dog urine, rabbits. Check with one of our plant doctors at each location for help in identifying the cause and proper treatment.
  • Some yellowing & browning of needles on pines can be expected at this time of year as old growth makes way for new. Excessive thinning on the interior of the tree and/or browning or dropping needles on the tips of your branches, however, are signs of a problem. Bring in a branch and pictures to one of our plant doctors for a diagnosis.
  • Heat stressed trees like Aspens will drop some leaves to conserve moisture. Additional watering and mulching will help somewhat in this situation.
  • Be sure to water any new plantings every day or every other day.
  • Check all plants weekly to be sure they are getting adequate water; established trees, shrubs, perennials & roses require 1 inch of water per week throughout their root zones. Water newly planted trees, shrubs and perennials 3-4 times per week.
  • Inspect irrigation system regularly for leaks, clogged emitters, broken/clogged head and other problems. Remember to adjust emitters out from the trunk or base of your plants as they grow. Adjust watering cycles on your irrigation clock as temperatures cool.
  • Mulch, mulch, mulch with G&B Organics Soil Building Conditioner, Compost or Planting Mixes.
  • Continue fertilizing vegetables with G&B Organics Tomato, Vegetable & Herb Fertilizer every month and G&B Organics High Bloome Liquid Fertilizer up to twice per week.
  • Rufous hummingbirds have arrived and will stay until fall, so keep feeders full of fresh sugar water until then. Be sure to change every few days to avoid spoilage -- more frequently if in full sun all day. For great family entertainment, consider adding a few extra feeders – one on a window for close up birdwatching and another in a different part of your yard that is a good viewing spot. Because Rufous are so feisty and territorial, be sure that no feeder is in the sightline of the others.
  • Continue offering SBU Suet Dough to warblers, nuthatches, wrens & woodpeckers.

BIRD OF THE MONTH

Red-winged Blackbird
Agelaius phoeniceus
Red-winged blackbirds are a familiar sight in marshy areas, along water courses, or even water hazards on a golf course. They may also be found in drier upland habitat if there is water nearby. The male’s distinctive shoulder patches of red edged with yellow make them easy to spot, and although the female’s streaked dark brown plumage and less obstreperous behavior may cause the casual observer to confuse them with a sparrow, their obviously larger size, similar to a robin, will set them apart. Red-winged blackbirds are such a common bird and can consume such large amounts of seed at feeders, they may be viewed unfavorably; however, they are also a species that has seen a population decline of 30% over most of their range.
