Re: bug id

I had a Clematis 'Nelly Moser' in a 1/2 gal pot with a little trellis and
they were on it. But I zapped them and they hopped.  I noticed a few more on
some lilies, so I checked all my lilies.  I noticed a hosta bloom was droopy
and checked and there they were, so I checked all my hosta and they were on
virtually every one that was in flower.  They are always on a flower stalk,
close to a bud if it is hosta or lily. I sprayed them with a mix of sevin
and pyola and I haven't seen any return, but I'm sure they'll be back.

Jim, I only had one last year.  Now.....lots of them.  Watch out.
