Question of the Week – Wireworms and Grubs

Posted by romeethredge on May 23, 2015

Last week I had a photo of a messed up potato. It had been fed on by wireworms or grubs. The home gardener tore up some turfgrass and immediately planted potatoes. Often we have this problem on potatoes in this situation. There some soil insecticides that can be used preventitively. Here’s a link to a UGA publication concerning growing potatoes, UGA Home Garden Potatoes.


This week I have a photo of a bumblebee getting nectar from a plant. I want you to identify this plant that is commonly found on roadsides.
