Timing everything when it comes to garden pests By Jenae Ryan, Post Rock Extension District When it comes to controlling in- sects and diseases in our gardens and landscapes, timing is everything! Un- fortunately, we often don't realize we have a pest problem until the damage is already done.Understanding the life cycle of the pest or disease is important to identify when the pest will be active and when to treat for if needed. For example, let's talk about bag- worms. By the time most people real- ize they have a bagworm problem in their trees and landscape plants, the bagworms have created large bags that are visibly hanging from the limbs. At this point, the worms are no longer actively feeding, and those tough little bags of silk and plant material are impervious to insecticide treatments. So what do we need to know to time the proper application if chemical treat- ments are deemed necessary? In this case, we need to know when the worms will be small and actively feeding to get the best control. Bag- worms begin to hatch in mid May and can continue to hatch for about six weeks. To get the most thorough cov- erage, spray once in early June with a followup treatment three weeks later. This will cover most of the hatching period while the worms are still small enough to be affected by an insecticide treatment, and will actually ingest it because they are actively feeding. Don't wait until you see those large bags to treat for bagworms, especially if they have been a problem in the past. Knowing the cycle of a specific disease is also important. Some are prevalent in the spring, others not until later in the growing season. Some re- quire cool, wet conditions, while other diseases prefer hot weather. It also helps to know which parts of the plant are affected in determining the timing of a pesticide application. Diseases that affect the leaves could "-also'affect other pai'ts Of the plato. In some cases, a disease that affects the leaves will be unsightly, but may not cause any lasting damage to the plant, so control measure may not be re- quiredr If it affects fruit, there may be a required preharvest interval after the spray treatment has been applied be- fore you can harvest the fruit. Some diseases that affect fruit need to be treated for while the plant or tree is still m the flowering stage or even earlier in the spring. If you have had insect or disease problems in the past, try to remember when those problems popped up and start thinking about preventative mea- sures now. There's the old saying that "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." Think about devoting a little time and energy now to looking for those potential problems, and reap the benefits in pounds of your favorite fruits and veggies later! Your plants would thank you if they could! As always, if you have questions identifying a disease or pest problem or need guidance in determining if treatment is needed, please contact your local Post Rock Extension District of- rice. I would be glad to help with your lawn, garden, and landscape questions! Prostrate cancer prognosis improves The prognosis for men suffering from prostate cancer has changed momentously for the better over recent years. An estimated 2,850,139 men are living with prostate cancer in the United States, according to recent stud- ies. They are "lucky" victims, one might say, because of breakthroughs that may potentially allow doctors to stop the disease in its tracks, according to the Association of Mature Ameri- can Citizen. One treatment, Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy (SBRT), for ex- ample, is reported to have a nearly 99 percent cure rate. Dr. Raquibul Hannan, assistant professor of radiation oncology at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dal- las, led a study that revealed just how effective this new means of pinpoint- in radiation delivery is. g"The high cure rate is striking when compared to the reported rive-year cure rates from other approaches like sur- gery or conventional radiation, which range between 80 to 90 percent, while the side effects of this treatment are comparable to other types of treat- monk" See Us For 111 E.
