I apply predatory nematodes every year for these and wireworm. Do it while the soil is still slightly damp so the nematodes can work their way down into the soil. Treat both your lawns and garden area as you don't want any sort of "reservoir" that allows them to transfer back into either area. They tend to go after carrots, I can tell how effective the ...

I dug a oak up 5 years ago and placed it in a gallon size container and have had much success keeping it at its original height.(2 foot tall for 5 years).

Grubs like the one you've pictured feed on plant roots. If there are a lot of them, then yes, they are doing damage. You may just not be noticing it yet. The worst part is they will eventually pupate into adult beetles, and those will work on damaging the above-ground parts of your plants.

So, when I loosen the soil in my veggie garden in the spring, I leave the grubs on the surface for the birds to get. As for your potted orange, what do you mean when you say it is totally infested? How ...

Clear pots can be great for plants, especially transplants. Plants vary a lot, but in general, the roots reach the edge of a clear container, feel the sun, and stop growing. This prevents them from getting root bound. Once transplanted into the ground the root start growing with a minimum of transplant shock. Broccoli is an example of a traditionally ...

Flotech has a guide on their site for sizing fountain pumps, which mentions : Step Two - Look for the maximum head height rating This is how high (vertically) the pump can lift the water. Water pumped to its maximum height by a given pump doesn't necessarily mean the flow will be very strong at that maximum height. In fact, it might be only a trickle. ...
