amelanchier, I'm sorry to hear that you have an infestation too. At least you are aware of it and can do something about it.

I'm starting to think that I have the European paper wasps too. I'd been leaving them alone assuming they were the native ones. After the post and the antennae thingy, I may have tons of the European kind.

I'm really hoping that we don't get the emerald ash borer. I have a few young ash trees that I was hoping would help create my woodland area. I am adding other trees among the pioneers that we have.

Anyway, I went out three times to pick off and kill those little buggers from my little guy. Then I went out to water it and then I saw the rain coming down...on a sunny day.
