Leaf curling bugs come every year in my vinca

Post  Corri on 6/2/2013, 3:43 pm

Can we spray with BT worm killer before they infest? We get them every year when the weather gets hot. They eat my vinca ground cover and I would like to prevent their spread as they eat it fast!

Vinca is Periwinkle. Loved to suck the sweet nectar out of the back of the blossoms when I was a kid.

I have not tried that but please if you do try it let us know how well it works. You could do a test and spray half and leave the other half interest to see if it actually does help. Learn this year to know for sure next.
