Controlling Grasshoppers in our gardens

by Rincon-Vitova Insectary

Grasshoppers

Most grasshoppers are general feeders, but they prefer young green plants and some annual flowers. Chewing mouthparts make large, round, smooth holes in leaves. Heavy infestations can strip plants to stalks. During major outbreaks they feed on almost any green plant, and damage may occur over a considerably longer period.

Identification

Hind legs, have greatly enlarged femurs, are well adapted for jumping. 

Antennae are relatively short versus crickets and katydids, which have long antennae. 

Most are winged and are good fliers, although a few species are flightless.

Show Notes: Welcome to Ep 130.  A word about last week’s episode and the noise.  I will recap the IPM question that I read last week.  Tester pack, Blueberry Muffin.  California doesn’t have employee protection for cannabis patients, how do we change that?  

Strain of the Week:  Gasoline –  The description of this says that It’s a cross of ChemDawg and OG Kush and sativa dominant.  Of course it has a fuel aroma.  There’s also this wet dirt and pine cones and funk smell, with a sweet fruity flavor at the end of exhales.  21% THC wasn’t too heavy, nice day time high.  

Social Media: Social Media:   IPM Spider Mites (SM) during flowering @lonestar_grows.  Same notes as last week.

Click on the links below to watch and listen

Listen: https://inmygrowshow.libsyn.com/ep-126-patrick-goggin-and-delta-8-thc

Show Notes:  Welcome to Ep. 126.  Later I got Patrick Goggins back.  CannaQueen is starting her own YouTube show and I’ll be co-host.  It’s called “Candid with Canna Queen”.  We’re going to be live at 9pm EST. 6pm PST.  Unpack taster pack and product reviews.  Dosist vape cartridge..taste like pine lemon to me 

Social Media: We are doing a seed giveaway with Canna Queen Genetics check the shows IG account @inmygrowshow for the repost and rules.  One lucky winner will win a pack of Butter Cream Haze seeds and a pack of Queen White Haze seeds also.  Winner will be announced on ep. 127.  

Strain of the Week:  Hazel Berry a.k.a.Haze Berry – Sativa dominant cross between Super Silver Haze and the famous Blueberry.  17.5 THC.  To me it smelled like pine trees and sugar.  The flower looked great and the flavor was mostly pine.  The high was nice, wasn’t too racey and the come down was smooth, not a crash.  It was a decent high for the price, $35.  I did have one issue with it.  I was surprised that it was dry when I opened it, even with a humidity pack.  That tells me it’s been sitting in the package for awhile.  Packaged in June
