Howdy neighbor...fellow Arkansan. Where in Arkansas are you?
There are a lot of organic gardeners on here that may be able to help you more than I, we have such a bug problem that I have been using 10% sevin dust. SSHHH...I may get in trouble for that. Last year I tried washing/spraying the plants
with a mild...very mild solution of water & dishwashing liquid...it did help but didn't solve the bug problem. The bug lady is usually around and may be able to be more specific with your buggies...meantime, welcome and enjoy the forum.
