  1. We have little dark brown worms that curl up too. Millions come out st night under the mercury light. In house too. Have seen them but this year terrible. I always called them wireworms by what are they? Good or bad?

  2. Notice the Ash Borer is in the Lincoln area now. Is there any recommendations you would give us in GI to combat any infestation of our Ash Trees at this time?????

    • Thanks for the question. The recommendation of the Nebraska Forest Service is to not apply products until we are within the 15 mile radius of the designated infestation. At this point in time, Grand Island is still outside of that treatment recommendation area. Additionally we are also out of the recommended treatment window for this late in the season.
