STINK BUGS

Look out for your citrus, its stink bug season. We do a twice daily vacuum of the pests. Keith has adapted an old vacuum cleaner by taping a large soft drink bottle with the bottom cut out to the vacuum hose.  This allows us to home in on them accurately and suck them up.  This time of year its a continual task.  What is surprising is that we have 3 citrus trees in a line, Lemon, Kaffir Lime  and Tahitian Lime.  They are only interested in the Tahitian Lime.
