There’s another pest about.
As well as the struggle with Japanese Knotweed in our gardens, I’ve recently seen some gardens over-run by another invader: the Rosemary Beetle
They may look beautiful, but your rosemary, lavender, sage and thyme are in danger if you ignore them.
They are not at their most dangerous now, but if you get rid of the adults now, you might stand a chance of avoid a complete loss of your lovely aromatic plants. Just watch out, they’re tricky and drop off to the ground if you don’t grab them quickly (they don’t bite).
Nothing a good squelch can’t fix!
