Purple Lady Bugs In Hawaii – True or False?

Select The truth about purple lady bugs in HI

Lady bugs are not just cute and sweet looking they are incredibly hard-working to remove aphids and more from our precious plants in the garden. Nurseries sell them, these are a special treat to give the grand children to open the box and let them fly in the garden. Make a wish!

Our new farm has lady bugs flying around our fruit trees all day long. GOD has blessed us with our new land.

Thank you Jesus!

Flowers that attract ladybugs are:

Roses, Angelica Calendula Caraway Chives Cilantro Cosmos Dill Fennel Feverfew Marigold Statice Sweet Alyssum Yarrow and more.

 

How to keep your ladybugs?

Insecticides will kill ladybugs the same as they will kill harmful bugs. Place shallow bird baths near your garden, ladybugs need to drink too. You can also build ladybug houses to provide shelter for your ladybugs.

 When you receive your ladybugs, place them in the fridge for a six to eight hours.  The cool temperature will slow the ladybugs down. Open the container and let them awake for a few hours before letting them go to do their job in your garden.

Most important release at night! Dusk is the best time to release ladybugs as, again, they will be likely to fly off. Release them near the plants and water source.

Wisteria “When To Prune”

Wisteria “When To Prune”

Dear Friends Of The Donkey Whisperer Farm

If you have been following my blog since 2009 you know I am a serious gardener. Wisteria seems to take forever to mature and then it appears to be a big mess if we do not know how to manage it. One of the most important considerations before you plant this mysterious and elegant plant is to understand how to set this plant up for success. Some homes simply do not have enough space for the wisteria. I call this plant the fairy tale of gardens, the grace and elegance is beyond compare.

059 - Copy

  1. Make sure you have a strong arbor to support this beauty.
  2. Plant away from any structures, i.e., home etc. As this plant will seriously become invasive if you do not learn how and when to prune, manage the plant.
  3. Do not prune every year as you will have no flowers, just leaves.

New Study – Wait At Least A Year To Neuter Your Male Dog CANCER

New Study – Wait At Least A Year To Neuter Your Male Dog CANCER

Hello friends,

In loving memory of our big dog Sampson a rescue from Pet Finders. GOD has one more angel in heaven, we love you and miss you big dog!

As you may or not recall we buried our big dog Sampson from Cancer last November. Sampson was a rescue who was neutered at eight weeks old by the humane society. I was surprised to learn that cancer in male dogs is linked to neutering too early. As always do your homework before making any decisions. All dogs must have fences. It is the responsibility of the owner to keep the dog on our property. A male dog that is not neutered will go looking for a place to make more dogs.

I am not a breeder nor a show person. My animals are part of our family we want each one to live a full life and stay as healthy as possible. Share the news and safe a life.

Select Neuter Your Male Dog

COPIED FROM THE LINK ABOVE

Should you neuter your dog, and if so, when?

If you are a bottom-line kind of person, and want your male dog to live as long as possible but don’t want to read the rest of the article, the answer is still yes — but wait until he is at least a year old.

If you are breeding or showing your dog, do not neuter him. Breeding and neutering are not used in the same sentence for obvious reasons. If you are showing your dog, you already know that shows like to see dogs with all of their parts. If your dog will be an athlete or a hunting dog, you may also want to consider not neutering your dog.

That’s because cancers we once thought were preventable by neutering, such as prostate cancer, are now thought to be increased by neutering. And there is now no doubt that large-breed dogs who are neutered suffer more bone and spleen cancers than those who are not.
