SQUASH AND STOMP
The green vege bugs are back and breeding. You’ve got to keep on top of these sapsuckers (ditto aphids) as not only do they drain the life out of beans and tomatoes, they can spread disease. Squash them by hand. It’s very effective (and quite satisfying) for keeping the numbers down early in the season. Keep slugs and snails in check too. The best time to catch them in the act is on a wet night.
