The untimely rains damaged most of my plants. The plants soaked in rains. When the rains stopped, one day, I noticed a few bugs on my Chrysanthemum plants. Oh, these bugs hid themselves in the layers of the flower petals!
I picked the flowers to see the bugs. They looked cute, trying to cuddle with the petals to keep themselves warm. But I was also angry because they damaged the plants. The Mums also faced stem rots. I had to prune all these plants to avoid further diseases.
The plants get immune to the pesticide that I use. And so, there is a need to change the pesticide after a while. The Neem oil worked really well. While I was searching the Internet for information about pests, I found this amazing Web site (BugGuide.net): http://bugguide.net/node/view/15740
Have a bug-free garden! :-)
