Last Weekly Issue

This is the last weekly issue of the Home, Yard, and Garden Pest Newsletter for this year. Weeds, diseases, and insect pests tend to be more prevalent in the spring as the frequent rains provide moisture for weed seed germination and fungus disease development. The warming temperatures and growing plants result in a sequence of insect pests as well. Starting in early July, reduced rainfall and hot temperatures result in fewer pest occurrences that develop slower. For that reason, this newsletter will be published every other week during July, August, and September, through mid-October. (Phil Nixon)
