Re: Too late, too late!!! :o(


Yes Clyde, I think everyone should be aware that vinegar is not entirely
harmless.  Last year one of our garden tour people used vinegar in her
garden, I assume it was too strong a solution, and had to pick off leaves
that totally turned white.  She was beside herself thinking she would not
have any plants left for the tour.

I have purchased two 10 or 15# bags waiting for the first appearance of
those dreaded creatures.
