Walnut Twig Beetle
The Walnut Twig Beetle (WTB), Pityophthorus juglandis, the insect involved in Thousand Cankers Disease of Black Walnut (TCD), has been detected in Indiana for the first time at a Franklin County sawmill. The beetle was detected in a trap placed at the sawmill for a 2014 statewide survey for WTB. Additional WTBs were found during an inspection of walnut logs and lumber at the mill.
Many gardeners may already have completed some early soil preparation and even limited planting, have already prepped and testing out of lawn and garden equipment and possibly even accomplished some weed control or fertilization-whatever could be accomplished with the wet cool soils and air temps struggling into the sixties.
