- Jul 10, 2009Hello dear friends.
Report from colorado beetle battle.
I tried the chilli mix spray, and wormwood spray(localy recomended). Didn't seem to make great impression on the beetles.
Reasons - at that stage they were quite numurous, and probably very hungry. Didnt care about taste I guess, enjoying spicy and bitter meal !
The losses in some cases were significant. Couple of the plants were 90% eaten so we dig out the potatoes, and there was enough for a meal for two :).
We thought we needed sth more drastic, so we picked them up twice with the intetion of making colorado beetle shake, which we didnt make yet. The traditional Polish techinque ;) helped quite a lot !!! HAlleluya !!
Then I sow a lovely picture, for the first time. One cute bug was sucking out the colorado beetle larve by a little "straw" he poked in it.
Nature keeps the balance??
So thanks all for help.
I will keep informed from the front
