We have a Nasty little creature eating our beautiful flowers . . . this little guy and his buggy relatives!
Meet the Japanese Beetle. This little guy may not look harmful, but JB is EXTREMELY destructive!
He has eaten the leaves off of my beautiful roses and left skeleton remains of some of my potted plants.
We had the landscaping maintenance gal come today to give a look to see what we need to do. She sprayed a "special" treatment on our plants and surveyed the damage. My potted plant is getting a dose of dawn dish soap water to discourage those little creatures from eating.
Maintenance gal also noted that "IRRIGATION GUY" is over watering our plants AND yard. Randy (irrigation guy and my hubs) thinks he needs to water EVERYTHING thoroughly each night . . . manually. The irrigation system runs automatically, but my irrigation guy thought things were looking a bit puny so he thought he would help out the irrigation system. Maintenance gal advised that Irrigation Guy back off on the watering. Apparently, Irrigation Guy has done such a great job in the watering department, we have fungus growing AND some of the plants are suffering from OVER watering. The backyard also has a bit of water standing. Yep, when my hubs a.k.a. irrigation guy does a job, he does it to the best of his ability!
For the sake of our plants and grass . . . Back OFF Irrigation Guy & take a vacation . . . your plants and yard thank you!
