We seem to be growing a fine crop of these guys right now-and little else.
Also known as grape leaf skeletonizers. They showed up last year and decimated all the
vegetation on my grapevines before I even realized what was happening.
So this year I was determined to stay ahead of the game.
Faithfully every morning I would go out and pick the affected leaves off the vine-with their little clusters of nasty caterpillars.
But then real life intervenes, early morning appointments, the heat and lack of time.
So today I zapped them with the bug killer.
It felt real good.
