I discovered this tiny little colorful creature on our lantana -- that seems to be his plant of choice, and I believe he's responsible for the small holes in some of the leaves. He looks like a member of the grasshopper family but I can't find him on the internet. He's between 1/4 and 1/2" long with a black body w/white stripes (which look yellow in sunlight) and red legs. Attached is a photo I took. Thanks!
I have a severe invasion of what I believe are lavender aster weeds that took over my Bermuda lawn at the end of last summer. I think that this may be hard to recover from. I was online the other day and was taken aback when I saw many references to using Roundup to broadcast spray a dormant Bermuda lawn and it indicated that it wouldn't harm the Bermuda as long as it was totally dormant...This sounds like a great way to alleviate my problem, but wanted to get some professional feedback first. I live in McDade,TX and my Bermuda is fully dormant due to the the very cold weather so far this year. Thanks in advance for any info you can offer. Mark M

I have a small orchard and want to plant subterranean clover in the lanes. The soil is typical West Bastrop county mud and tests completely deficient for Nitrogen and Phosphorus and very low in Potassium using an inexpensive soil test kit. I've read not to fertilize clover until after first leaf appears but am concerned this is for "normal" soil. What fertilizer protocol would you recommend?

Hi, My large stock pond is not holding water. Can you recommend someone in the Bastrop/ Elgin area who might come and help me assess and repair our pond?
