    Default Am I the only one?

    Commemorating Bill V. Am I the only one who has noticed all the purple insect traps hanging along the road ways? What type of insects are they trapping now?

    Default Sweet memories of Dear Bill...

    Possibly the Japanese Beetle as they Plagued my garden and outside areas until I sprayed the Bio-Fixed upon 'um.
    We just don't have enough Assine (sp) Beetles......some days I can spell and some mornings I can't because too many mal-functions utilizing Oxygen with COPD and dyslexia too. That is a full head, but plenty of rooms left for recording our lifetime artistically.

    Purple boxes are hanging in trees on the University of Arkansas campus hoping to trap half-inch long bugs known as emerald ash borers.
    This was from 2014, but sounds like it could be the same problem.

    They are a double edged sword. The traps attract the beetle to the garden. They kill as advertised, but call them to the very plants you are trying to protect. Worse they lay next years crop in the ground. They instruct you to put them on the outskirts but unless it's at a neighbor's you may regret it.

    Yup. We used them a few years ago and saw way more beetles after we put out the traps than before. Plus we had to empty the traps every day and had bags of dead bugs to get rid of.
