sorry, folks, I'm a bee-hugger :mrgreen:
By the way do not!!! be afraid of aphids. They have never ever ruined any of my rose blooms or mar my plants. Sometimes early in the spring they will swarm my rosebuds, but not a lick of damage. They just look like they're a problem but they really aren't- but if it bothers people that much, just mail-order some ladybugs, follow the directions on your package and there you have it. Problem solved. but to me it's a whole lot of nonsense worrying about aphids. Their lifespan season is so short and so brief. Much more bothersome are thrips and cucumber beetles which I spray with hot pepper wax spray. They like to leave very annoying "hickey marks" on my blooms.
For JBs just be sure your lawn has grubkiller. But the far better organics method is Milky Spore. JB grubs love hiding in moist soil.
