I do not use  pesticides as a rule, my main thing are beer traps around.

they are wood lice when I pick up a strawberry they are all in the holes chewed in every fruit. I have never had this before but this season they are all in and on my fruits

how can I rid my strawberry patch of wood lice ( bakers )

every time I pick my strawberries they have been nibbled by the pesky pests. I have tried ant powder no good. wasp nest powder again no use. this year wood lice seem everywhere and so are their mates.

I always plant Tegetus plants between my tomatoes in my greenhouse, they look quite nice, smell of fox when brushed against, but most of all for the last 3 years i have had NO white fly, bought some sticky strips and hung them, but no flies on them .before i always had clouds of white flie,

this year has been a bean disaster year for me aswell.i usualy get around 65 to 70 pounds of beans off my 23 vines, but with the very hot days the flowers have not set ,the plant drops its flowers when stressed, just like trees in very hot times when water is short. other hot years i have mist sprayed every evening on hot days to set the flowers,& stop them from dropping, but was away for 2 weeks, i had a timer to water a soaking hose in the trench every morning from my water buts, thats why we enjoy the challenging hobby of gardening, every year is different, the older you get the more you realise what you learnt in passed years does not always work in the pressent one.

clematus problem

I mentioned a while ago that my lovely clematis was dieing back from the bottom and asked for help ideas, as i, and everyone that answered my call, thought it was wilt.Although  i found no sign of dead stems infact they were green inside. this week we have a fresh flush of new leaves on all the stem that looked like it was dead, about 3 foot up the stems, so now we have seed heads at the top , coloured leaves from 3 foot to the top, and new green leaves at the base, don't you just love 2012 as a gardening year NOT..still i still have my loved clematis
