bugs on roses

We feed the birds in our garden and put up nest boxes - we spent yesterday evening watching a pair of bluetits hoovering up aphids from a rose bush and take them into the nest box. Not an aphid to be seen this morning. 


No need to spray with noxious chemicals that kill good and bad alike  - leave it to the birds.

We had them in the garden with several dogs and they ignored them, but if yours is the sort of terrier who insists on eating everything it might be as well to get rid of it.  Just brushing against it and being around it shouldn't cause a problem.

Blue tit fledgling advice

Posted: 21/05/2016 at 12:42

Blue tit chicks are usually pretty mobile quite quickly.  The parents will continue to feed them for a little while but they'll soon be on your rosebushes hoovering up the aphids.  There are probably lots of insects among the raspberries for them too.


Keeping a watch from a distance is the best you can do

Euphorbia lathyris aka Caper Spurge https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Euphorbia_lathyris 


They often pop up in gardens at this time of year.  


I like them, but beware of getting the white sap on your skin as it can cause a nasty rash like a burn, especially in strong sunlight.
