Army worms anybody?
« on: June 11, 2011, 10:51:45 PM »
I have an abundance of army worms this year. I think they are already worse than last. Anybody else got these things? I keep spraying my apple trees and cherries with BT but have to keep at it. They eat the leaves off the baswood trees. Help. Harold

Bt is the good spray to use.   You can go hard with Sevin, but Bt is the safe spray.

Just be aware that bees are very sensitive to Sevin.
