We are seeing a variety of pests, especially aphids, with infestation populations. If you’re not sure what’s eating your plants, visit your nearest Moana Nursery Plant Doctor with a sample of plant with bugs or disease. We’ll help you ID the culprit and suggest the safest, most effective controls.
Caterpillar Alert!
A variety of caterpillars, including hordes of leafrollers, is being reported. A great way to get rid of them without harming beneficial insects is to attract birds to your yard by hanging a bird feeder or two near your plants. Many birds love caterpillars and will eagerly eat yours. Larger populations may require different methods of control; if the birds can’t handle them and you need “reinforcements,” visit us for more pest control options.

  • Check all plants weekly to be sure they are getting adequate water. Inspect irrigation system regularly for leaks, clogged emitters, broken/clogged heads, and other problems. Adjust watering schedule as weather dictates.

  • Treat turf fungi with a fungicide. For best results, alternate the fungicide used each year – use Bonide Infuse or Copper Fungicide.

  • Inspect lawn for weeds and use Bonide Weed Beater Complete, Weed Beater Fe or Weed Beater Ultra to control. Mow high (3 to 3-1/2 inches) so individual blades of grass can shade each other.

  • Control insect pests, including aphids, mealybugs, scale, spider mites, thrips, whitefly and others with Ladybugs and Lacewings, Organocide Bee Safe 3-in-1 Garden Spray, or Bonide Bon-Neem II. For safe and quick control of leaf chewing insects, use Captain Jack’s Dead Bug Brew.

  • If you haven’t already done so, mulch all garden beds with G&B Organics Soil Building Conditioner (SBC) after thoroughly weeding and watering. 3 inches of SBC will reduce your water requirements by up to 30%.

  • Use Fox Farm Marine Cuisine or G&B Organics Rhododendron, Azalea & Camellia Fertilizer to help green up conifers that are looking chlorotic (yellow).

  • Fertilize roses after first flush of flowers with G&B Organics Rose & Flower Fertilizer and mulch with G&B Organics Harvest Supreme.

  • Prune hybrid tea roses back to 5 leaflet leaf as soon as flowers fade. Many shrub roses are self-cleaning and don’t require pruning. When in doubt, lightly prune old blossoms to keep plant looking attractive.

  • Fertilize annuals in containers, baskets and window boxes every 2-3 weeks with G&B Organics Bud & Bloom. Liquid G&B Organics High Bloome Fertilizer can be used with each watering. Always water plants before fertilizing.

  • Monitor succulent new growth for signs of aphids (puckered, stunted leaves). Hose down affected plants. Don’t use strong chemicals if beneficial insects are present.

  • Continue to deadhead annuals and perennials to encourage new flower formation.

  • Fertilize spring blooming bulbs with Happy Frog Steamed Bone Meal or G&B Organics Bud & Bloome Fertilizer if you did not do so at planting time. Mark the spots with small stakes to repeat fertilizer application in the fall when plants are not visible.

  • Continue to pinch off new growth of mums, asters, and late-blooming tall sedums.

  • Fertilize vegetables with G&B Organics Tomato, Vegetable & Herb Fertilizer.

  • Stake or cage tomatoes as they begin to grow. If your tomatoes are exposed to wind, apply Bonide Tomato & Blossom Set.

  • Protect tomatoes from blossom end rot as soon as fruit sets with Bonide Rot Stop.

  • Pinch new top growth of herbs to keep them from flowering. Snip or cut off sprigs of herbs to use in cooking all season.

  • Plant pumpkins and melon plants.

  • To grow larger, sweeter fruit, physically thin fruit trees of excessive fruit now. For apples and pears (cluster fruit) thin cluster to one or two fruits, spaced along branches no closer than six inches. For most stone fruit (peaches, nectarines, apricots), thin fruit to one every six inches along branches. Plums generally do not need thinning.

  • To ensure bird seed is eaten quickly and stays fresh, keep feeders filled with a one- or two-day supply of seed.

  • Clean all bird feeders with hot soapy water and a bleach solution of 1-part bleach to 10 parts water. Rinse and thoroughly dry before refilling. To prevent disease from spreading and keep feeders in good condition, do every 2-3 months.

  • Hummingbirds & orioles have shown up in various parts of town. Put out oranges, grape jelly for orioles and WBU Hummingbird and Oriole Nectar for both hummingbirds and orioles.  Be sure to change the nectar every few days so it doesn’t spoil. Keeping feeders out of direct sunlight and using Nectar Defender will ensure that your nectar stays healthy for your birds.

  • Add movement to birdbaths with water wigglers to attract more birds. Install a mister for added water interest for both hummingbirds and songbirds.

HIGH DESERT
BIRD OF THE MONTH
Black-chinned Hummingbird
Archilochus alexandrii

A medium-sized hummingbird at 3.75”, slightly smaller than the Anna’s Hummingbirds which may also be frequenting your feeders. Very similar to the iconic Ruby-throated hummingbird in appearance, but there is very little overlap in range with their eastern counterpart, occurring most commonly in Texas mid-migration. Black-chinned hummingbirds move north and northwest, and Ruby-throated move north and east, from their wintering habitats in Mexico and southern Texas. The black-chinned name comes from the deep purple throat patch on adult males which, in the right light, glows bright violet. In most situations the appearance will be of an all-black head, more silver-grey green than the brighter colored Ruby-throated. Females have slight differences in proportion and bill shape and length, but the two species are most readily told apart by the distinctive pumping of the tail that the Black-chinned exhibits while hovering.

Breeding behaviors include spectacular display dives of 66-100’ by the male during courtship and territorial defense. When not at feeders, these hummingbirds often perch high on a dead twig or branch, darting off erratically in defense of territory or on the hunt for insect prey. Nests, built and maintained by the female, are initially a deep cup shape constructed of soft plant material and spider webs. The spider web construction allows the nest to expand into a broader, shallower configuration as the eggs hatch and the young birds develop over the 33 days+ of incubation and nestling. Black –chinned hummingbirds may have up to three broods per season, although two is more common.

Attracting Hummingbirds to Your Yard
Black-chinned hummingbirds will feed and nest in a wide variety of habitats, and the best way to invite them to have a family in your yard is to provide clean, fresh nectar (1 part sugar to 4 parts water), hummingbird-friendly flowers to bloom throughout the season, and avoid the use of pesticides that would limit the insects on which they also feed. Change out solution and clean feeders on a regular basis - a minimum of twice per week in warm weather. Avoid placing your feeders in direct sun; the use of Nectar Defender - an all-natural product that inhibits microbial growth - will further ensure that your feeder offerings remain healthful for the bird and does not allow for the development of toxic alcohols or molds.
