SaddleBrooke Article on Witches' Broom
The excessive amount of moisture, during the spring season is
bringing a nuisance insect to large populations, causing some plant
damage worthy of note.
Please be advised that Spittle Bug nymphs commonly feed on Salvia,
Rosemary and Texas Ranger.
In Saddlebrooke and Saddlebrooke Ranch the populations of this pest have
exceeded normal levels. If
you see globs of what looks like "spit" on your plants, wash it off with
a strong burst of your hose.
This might need to be done a few times before full eradication of
the pest. Pass the word along to friends and neighbors so that we can
collectively reduce the numbers of these pests.
All Master Gardener activities are cancelled until it is deemed safe to resume.
The High Desert class is cancelled and refunds are being made. Contact Elissa Cochran at 217-649-0289 if you have not already been contacted.
Also plant calls will be handled by telephone and email, but no home visits will be made.
