Bug photos

.

These are affected strawberry plants, these rows were the worst in our fields










The bugs!














The barrier the length of our field....with dying rows in the straw and our newly planted on the other side.
























And finally a view of our icecream bucket drop traps...we had to make sure no weeds formed bridges over the barrier - so weeding along the barrier was another chore! You can see the grease keeping the bugs from walking over the barrier. No bugs - spiders - or anything liked to walk on the grease.

Holy crap! I can't believe how many you guys caught and counted! The barrier method sounds so great! This is such a fascinating read. Such drama on berry farm! Who knew?
