Hunt County Master Gardener Wayne Bowman offers advice on ways to cope with insects in gardens and flower beds.
Wayne offers advice for dealing with insects manually by checking the underside of leaves. He says Seven Dust is a low-toxicity insecticide that controls 100 different pests. But it should not be used on flowering plants, because it is toxic to bees. Wayne offers a formula for combating fire ants that includes orange oil and Dawn dish detergent.
