Have you seen small, half-moon shaped holes taken out of the leaves in your garden? This may be a sign of leafcutter bees. They use the pieces of leaves to build nests. Leafcutter bees are great at pollinating, so it is best to leave them alone and allow them to exist peacefully in your garden.
If you’re one of the lucky ones to own fruit trees in northern Colorado, it’s time to be thinking about spraying! It can be difficult to choose which fungicide and pesticides to use for your plants, especially if you’re wanting to stay organic and not kill all the good bugs. We recommend the Natural Guard Spinosad Soap. This concentrate is from a natural substance that is made by a soil bacterium. It is used in many pesticide products and due to its natural formation, some of them are even approved for use in organic agriculture.
