leaf chompers
« on: November 12, 2011, 08:23:21 AM »
I have come to the conclusion that one of the major bud and new leaf eating insects in my garden is a cicada or a locust. Can anyone give me advice about deterring them.  I thought there might be a natural product such as neem oil which would stop them from chomping their way through my new growth. Any ideas gratefully received.
