Our new way of dealing
with Asparagus Beetles is to cut down the asparagus plants in the
Fall and use them as deep bedding in one of the chicken coops. The
chickens get to snack on the larvae when they wake up in the Spring.
We only found one Asparagus
Beetle last year and zero for 2012.
Maybe 2013 will be our first
year of serious asparagus?
