The Purdue Master Gardener Program is an integral part of the Purdue University Cooperative Extension Service and provides the residents of Indiana a chance to grow. Under the guidance and support of Purdue Extension, selected residents of a county voluntarily begin a training program specifically designed to prepare them to help others grow.
Every year there are conflicts between wildlife and people. While some use measures to attract wildlife to their yard, others experience property damage from nuisance wildlife. A Purdue expert recently posted information for homeowners who wish to trap nuisance wildlife.
The following are links of interest for agriculture and natural resources related topics.
Hover fly
Have you ever known someone who acts somewhat badly, but on the inside they are really good-hearted? That illustration may not correlate exactly to the hover fly, but it is an insect that looks and acts somewhat like a bee that stings, while in truth it is really a good insect. Hover flies are very numerous in some areas this year.
After the historic rainfall amounts we received in June and July, it is likely that more than a few lawns suffered real damage and death to turf from flooding or turfgrass diseases. I've covered this in years past, but due to our current situation it may be beneficial to review steps you can take to renovate a damaged lawn.
Come to Noble County Master Gardeners' first fall symposium and advanced Master Gardener training "IT'S HARVEST TIME! WHAT'S NEXT?" on Oct. 10. Please sign up by September 25!
