Time of Day to Water St. Augustine

What is the best time of day to water St. Augustine? I have read that watering in the evening makes the turf vulnerable to a certain type of fungus. Is that true?

treatment of wood borers

Hi Daphne, I had, what I now know, ironclad beetles on my globe willow last year. I noticed this spring that parts of the tree were dying. I'm not sure it can be saved, but what should I treat the tree with?
Thank you,

Permaculture ground cover centex

I am committed to establishing a food forrest eco system in my yard. I already have a lot of trees in, with quite a few nitro fixers like black locust, mesquite, palo verde, catspaw, goldenball lead tree, desert willow, and kidney wood; however, I neglected to establish a ground cover. I have a bunch of cardboard for sheet mulch, and I plan on getting a huge load of compost or soil mix to be a bed for the cover crop seeds that I plan on choosing for ground cover. I want to know some good varieties of perennial cover crop mix that are drought resistant, fast growing, and will survive in clay soil. Though I have not had a soil test, the soil in pretty black (its clay though) and drains well enough for my trees to be doing quite well. Also, I am trying to do a sort of meadow look in the front yard and I was wondering about a good variety of low growing clover and grass mix that I can grow from seed. I am a licensed irrigator and I have all the components for a drip irrigation system that I am adding to the back. I should have started off with designing and digging earth works like swales to assist with irrigation and erosion prevention, but I didn't. In the pictures the cardboard is kind of all over the place, I plan on getting it nicely situated and covered with organic matter and drip irrigation.

Reference question

I am reading from one of your listings:

https://aggie-horticulture.tamu.edu/vegetable/guides/organic-vegetable-production-guide/organic-crop...

There is a point made in a paragraph towards the bottom,,,,just under table #12 that I wanted more information on so I looked up the reference. It is the paragraph that starts of as "Often times during the production of a crop,,,,,". It is the last sentence of that paragraph that discusses details of making manure tea,,,,,and references reference #2. When I go to the reference page,,,,,the reference is by Boyhanon, George, et.al,,,,,Georgia Coop. Ext B1011:

http://www.caes.uga.edu/Publications/pubDetail.cfm?pk_id=6141&pg=np&ct=growing%20vegetables%20organi...

When I went to this reference,,,,,,I am unable to find specifics on the basis from which the manure tea method came. Can you help me with this or if your article's reference is incorrect. Thanks a bunch in advance for your help!

Problem with bed bugs

I have a duplex that has bed bugs. Can I get Vikane®? Does ozone kill eggs effectively? I have worked in labs and around chemicals for years. What about raising the temperature of the unit to over 120°F? What approach would you recommend?
