What are we doing wrong? From what I’ve read they pretty much don’t need a lot of care, but ours definitely needed something. — Charlene, Brownsburg
Dear Reader: The Japanese beetles were back in full force this past growing season, but the insect that hit the roses hard was the rose slug, Endelomyia aethiopes. The larvae are light green about a half inch long and feed on the underside of the leaves. They skeletonize the leaves. Once they finish feeding, they drop to the ground where they spend the winter until spring. The adults (sawflies) emerge in the spring and lay eggs on the new rose foliage. A general purpose insecticide should stop them. At the first sign of holes in the leaves start your attack and be sure to hit the undersides of the leaves. This year there were two generations, one in early spring and another in the fall.
Dear Dr. Dirt: How do we rid our garden of big fat white grubs? They eat potatoes in the ground. Does gypsum help? — Susan, Indianapolis
Dear Reader: At the end of the growing season, the grubs are large and difficult to control with an insecticide. As you rototill or spade the garden, collect the grubs and use them for fish bait. Grubs are root feeders and are not likely to enjoy potatoes. The insect that often feeds on potatoes is the wireworm. Gypsum is not an insecticide, so it will not control grubs and other insects.
Dear Dr. Dirt: Should a rain barrel be emptied for the winter? — Sam, Indianapolis
Dear Reader: It is a good idea to empty and turn rain barrels upside down for the winter. A barrel full of frozen water is likely to damage the barrel. It is also good to turn off outdoor water faucets and drain the hoses before storing them.
Dear Dr. Dirt: Do you know how I can be more accurate with the height of trees? — Barb, Indianapolis
Dear Reader: When the sun is out, measure the shadow of the tree and then your shadow. For example, if your shadow is five feet tall and the tree shadow is five times as large, the tree is approximately 25 feet tall. You may need a second person to help measure your shadow while you stand still.
Dear Dr. Dirt: We built a new home this year, and the builder planted a mature serviceberry tree near our driveway. It is about 8 feet tall, and several of the branches are covered in lichen. It doesn’t seem healthy, but I’d like to save it for its size and location. What do you recommend? — Candice, Greenwood
Dear Reader: Lichens are like freckles, they are the beauty marks of trees. And, more important, they are harmless. The serviceberry is an excellent tree, because of its early spring bloom, fruit and nice fall foliage color. The branches are somewhat smaller than other trees, which may give it the appearance of no... (Indianapolis Star)
