Yeah Specter also. 11 thing I would like to have you look go work again. But it is like -- in just in Paris where we have a lot of citrus and we get a lot of you know we would work about the the end of the situation everything like that -- which would you give. Way that we can locate. To see. The map what the foreign. Teeing area. -- okay out of a map of the citrus quarantined. Area in the New Orleans and northern Jefferson parishes. Is available. On the Louisiana department of agriculture's web site. You may also be able to find it on that LSU accent our web site. And it's supposed. It's supposed to be published in the newspapers that advocated in the times Picayune. Both though -- it published yes. OK but -- The web site extension turpitude -- -- on the extension service and the Louisiana department of agriculture and forestry if you Google LDA half. You should find that web site. Your welcome and thanks for the call. We have another collar weighed in online it's even from Lafayette. From the -- -- I don't moan and Harry. K I just -- -- -- question about that palms. Palm.

Played -- -- opponent aground about three quarters of away. On an angle. And main problem wit my approach and maybe even put a peaceable -- and on top of it so make it to the winner ever heard of that weight. Yes the first method of keeping it in -- covered. Wrapped in newspaper -- paper bags. Is my preferred method that has. If you put the -- time out now it'll be subject to the cold wet weather. And more likely to die have a fungal disease during the winter. OK. -- whatever apple with the newspapers do. Just rapidly and so what do. Colonel -- and evidence apparently. Well UN one. Kind of ball it up in the newspaper. In places and a plastic bag. And what the purpose of that is this and kind of helped keep a stable environment and artists stable humanity. -- And that -- -- plastic bag you know obviously believe it openly gay Errol. You would wanna use that pat paper bag not a plastic. Yes. Thank you you're welcome thank you for Colin. Now we have a collar on the West Bank -- column. Remarks are. I'm going to program the American Monday Ernie. And I have talked. A trial Monday problematic than they have she had paid to call list. -- -- On one side of the -- are awarded is that magnolia courses are great big thing in beautiful boom and all on mention -- and everything.

This year and only his owners immortal like his dying end. Wrong. Okay the pine tree is Stein. Yes of the pine tree and I just Warner. If I have it taken down is -- is awarding any any it was some rob O'Connor corner toward. Are -- it's a big big tree. Generally. Lumber companies and on -- interested in one single tree and they would prefer to harvest them while they're still green. So that no decomposition. Has started in the tree. More -- no green left on history is just dead branches are terror. Soviet Russia just get some article. Take it out -- away. Yes I -- -- -- license star Everest and make sure that you verify their licensed and insert through the Louisiana department of agriculture and forestry. -- practice so much for talking -- a married person. You're welcome thanks for calling. Are any -- as tell line. We now halftime them and we're coming up on break. Don't go away we'll be right back with more of the garments -- this is Russell Harris filling in for -- -- who's on vacation today. I'd like to go to John and met Ernie who's been patiently waiting. Hi John your -- there. I -- -- taken the call yeah I have one quick question. -- it's too right there weren't there. Yes. In our area it's generally not necessary to use that -- terrorized than. Fertilize and that's meant for more northern climates. So question for arranged. I think probably defeat. Well if you can get a weed and feed that does not contain fertilizers. That would be good to use now you can fine granular. Far herbicides. And your local garden centers and sites. Well alluded. Keep it does not contain trying to. Well it's it's a week it's we'd end product it's not a weed and feed. We do have a -- time. Yes there is one called green line 18 now that's very. Why right yes. You are welcome. All right and we have another caller holding the line line. I hear on the air with Russell parents. -- -- The land here on the air with -- Yeah it -- questions I'm over. It and bomb. Just -- all of what grade would you recommend here on on the auction. Well on the North Shore -- issue you long insomnia or shade and pretty much. -- -- -- It's always say grass is one of the that are occurrences. For Sonny Le case incidents. Is very muted grants. Saint Augustine as good as well but it and it's. A little bit higher care requirements and Bermuda installation. The that local people a year saints -- PD disagree with that. Senate he'd is known as the lazy man's grasp because you really don't have to fertilizer much. And all that it. If you liked nice dark green lawn you won't get that with the senate. Moreover. Light yellen collar naturally. Certain questions like one -- is it should not play this year. Surely too -- what would you would you. You can go ahead and plan this time of year if he gets -- Seed one German made in this cool weather. You know it would beside the yeah. OK IQ are much. Yeah welcome Obama. All right let's get a two. The next line we have gone in Slidell. I don't -- took them. -- -- -- -- The -- expects deductible loss of property. America. -- -- aware you're welcome. Haven't -- -- -- Further with the view that may have garden ponds at this time of year. It's. Good practice to take here Lilly is that you may have up closer to the surface and low around town and today. Deeper part of the ponds because that will help. Then survive cold weather especially. The tropical water lilies that decline often won't make it through the cold weather. Another option for the tropical water -- would be to. Put them in a garbage span you can bring them into warm location. Like in your garage or somewhere. And -- over in terms there. In. This school whether you have ornamental ponds with fish in them. You generally will cut back on feet in the fish because of the cold weather. They're not feeding in as much as they would normally. But he. Now's the time of -- that Louisiana iris are starting to. And -- active growth and you'll see it and then sprout and you can remove some of the old. Full range. And you should have already. Broken them up and divided them if you wanted to divide them and go ahead and fertilize. The Louisiana -- this time of year. Next month in. In December. If you have. Gardens he should take a rest from. Controlling pests that are generally. Aren't very many pests and you're -- and during the month of December. An exception to that rule would be scale and sex and if you do have scale use one esprit. With an all seasonal and all and all refined oil. -- And ultra. A culture appear oil. These are all. Petroleum oils that are made firm for a cultural youth. You may have to make. Two or three applications. Ten days apart took control scale and you yard. Cutting back the dead growth in the month of December is something that you may want to do we -- and freeze or two by that point. And you can remove some of the -- growth from. Tropical setting -- back in the furries. First things like high biscuits. Orix or right and if they've been damaged in frees you would want to uh oh well then ten. Hold there off knowledge until the spurning NC one. Comes back. And then you can -- him. Off. The -- growth at that point. Water rain is something that you shouldn't have to do much in the month of December. Only water newly transplanted. Annuals. And other plants. And the winner. Months -- a good time to plant trees but as they're not inactive truth growth today used this time to. Develop roots systems. And an exception to that would be planting. Any tropical trees sanctions. Saying. Citrus that's good to plant in the spurring. Rather than Clinton. In the wind turn taken that risk. It being damaged by cold weather. If if year. Gonna plan. Any thing in the month of December used. Have choices of cool season manuals that accidents. Pansies and Petit unions. Vital. I -- and that's that's seem all of these available. With. Thanksgiving holiday coming up boxing a lot of chrysanthemum. In the stores for sale they make a nice. Decoration. For hours generally last for about a month. And after that time you can -- flowers off and take an element planted in year. Art and and they should come back for a year a year. The garden variety moments. Tend to. Be a better choice for planning outdoors because they don't get so tall that they fall over and break. Whereas. The florist. Varieties of mom's. Day ten to. I get really tall says. During the growing season and you want a cut that is back to trying. He encouraged. Lateral growth and have -- spread out since then you can fall over. As easily. And now it's -- -- means for in the news by air on the -- and show it. Russell Harris -- Here filling in for -- do you know who's on vacation today. We were talking earlier with a gentleman who mansion. The monarch butterfly. And Hal their numbers are decreasing here in the -- return migration and threw out most of the country. And a little bit of background information on that. Would be that these are any. Migratory butterflies they. Migrate from Mexico. Up through almost into Canada. And back again during the year and they migrated over several generations. Of butterfly. Their primary. Food source for their caterpillars and are there enlarge the -- the milk weeds like. A common one you'll find in art and Sanders is a school apps via. To Derosa. It's that. Post plans for their largely. And these are very easy to grow and if you would like to help. Increase the number of monarch butterflies by providing host plants form. You can plant these. In your gardens dedicate a small area tear garden and then. Plant them either with transplants. Which you can buy in the garden centers or. Seeds which he combined garden centers are on line as well. There's been LR XT -- have heard on the news this morning. About two. -- decrease of up to 90%. In. Monarch butterflies which is an indication that there. In trumbull in their natural habitats and a lot of this is due to. The use of herbicides. Throughout the country in agricultural production. With these are asides are used to control weeds and milk leads are often we'd. In agricultural crops. They're being sprain and I killed. And also. I haven't seen any kind of back and -- but a possibility further decline would be the use of systemic. Pesticides. On plants that name me assistant nectar source. If you'd like to. Have me answer any of year gardening questions. Feel free to -- that 50426. 1870. Or 8668890. -- that and he. I'll be happy to take your calls. In the garden centers this time of year you'll see them transition from sound and plants to selling Christmas trees if you would like to plant sound than. In your yard can. Double as the Christmas tree. The eastern red cedar is any good choice and also Holly's and make good. Christmas. Tree they come in this naturally in the shape Christmas tree you can find these and it. Your garden sinners decorate them and then bring them how doors and plant them in your yard following Christmas. Thanksgiving. Is next weekend. Moms which I mentioned earlier. Make a great floral display a on Thanksgiving table are around the house. And that is there aren't good plan that can be reused again. In the garden. We have a collar Mary Collins and from Metairie. Hi Mary you're on the phone with Russell Harris. And grow and how can at pumpkin and not that. But there -- some artery well they're in our great. -- -- -- -- -- -- they are getting. These tiny little flat. Is in the center. And very -- some vegetables way. The and I -- done more than one error. Are you -- on these pumpkins for Newt. -- Oh. Often think about it it's kind of late in the season and they maybe. Killed. Trees and other frost in the near future. You can and treat them with. The Stanley pesticides. Like him at a low it would be and that will take care the take care of the in sex and then using. Any funds -- sides says it is. Might be ten handle work or Thad Allen says control that. -- -- -- -- -- -- Whether I bought them so. It felt like. In -- -- -- -- -- Is a pretty good fungicide recruitment downside to it -- of that it losses off easily if we have arranged. So you need to go out and re applying. If it remains. Well. That this story. That same. Kind of that brings. You have once there. Once it dries out again it's subject to being washed off the -- -- what you are you know welcome thank you for Kolb. -- And it's time for a break. Will be back with more of the carnage right after this guy this is Russell Harris filling in for -- and deal. Let's go to the phone and talked to Lesley from -- and use. I Harry today. -- It was critical form in my you know hand. A couple -- the goal. It -- air balls didn't put it has grown pick and fair. It is no rule. All round the main player. There like there's no -- in separate. Bit new -- borrow Altman. In the middle of the -- -- -- these -- a little props groan at the base of the pong or are can. They're generally pretty easy to remove. What you would wanna do it as. Code -- to have a glove on entered the base of the tree. And you may need to remove any fool expert on from it. And you can. Wiggle and twist in the -- -- and breaks free. You may also use something like. Hand shovel or -- to. Wedged in between -- and two free out. -- So you remove all work in the end. -- -- Well -- If it. If you half TU would remove the fall it's before you remove the pot bunkers that would make it easier to access the -- But generally you wanted to remove most of the -- it's because when you remove that pops they generally don't have much of our roots system. OK okay. I've appreciated. Thank you. You're welcome thanks for Colin the Garden -- and Obama. We have another collared teams from the North Shore. Hi change your own the garden -- At that is built on bush bill from bush and I. Quote. Some partly a month apple a lot of apps out. Thank you unfortunately yeah I'll. Be at all blown. And but the problem what art comes back and not at the spot but here's -- question. Bob beat out there -- -- it's well he walked up to be pressed to Bobble the ball move. And salt plant thought -- -- it art bought it for. Our. But it. -- -- a lot of the Bible these separate art. The parliament while. I'm not sure what would because and that to be -- That may be electability. That the copy in his next at crops yet there aren't some Mo -- but -- -- -- That would be a good idea tempering a sample and the year counting aids. And antsy if they can fifty with that. It's about problems he'd gotten all this like I had to continue to without. -- will make sure that he'd get but. He hit it that but at least you botnets are quite a bit. So. That should have been more spot the salt well anyway so. Out it -- are now. Right well. Depending on what pesticide used. In the past the residual of that pesticide. -- Yeah and it's gonna be on line. And keep it that much thank you for Colin. It's. Time for a break now and will be. Back with more of the guardianship and Ryan after that this is Russell Harris -- an inferred and you know only guardianship. Let's go to the phone and talk to genes from the North Shore. Aren't -- hi James. -- I was just -- them and also there. I -- I was calling on the door open an acre lot what's the best way that you'd recommend -- -- construction. In the -- -- -- eight in the yard. Okay the best way to get rid of ants in my yard. Would be TE is one of the granular. And poisons that you can put out there aren't. Two products made by the same company bear. One is by fanned three and and there is fair -- and they're both sold. And in a package that you can get firm. Big box stores and garden Sanders. It's -- it's a silver blue package and I believe it's called. Why now. And around. Not a 100% share my equity and yes to what you would do as you would use a little hand held spread -- and you put out -- by fan -- and her fifth perennial. And it lasts for. About four months to a year the fifth -- lasts longer than that by -- And the other using it just like detergent. -- with water and I. -- my own well. That may or may not or have never seen any research that substantiates. The city of detergent in years. Alone I would recommend sticking with. Pesticide. That was. Made for that purpose. -- a larger area to cover. -- well I'll give that a trial. You're welcome. I think -- -- we have a collar or Lee Cohen from Slidell. Yeah -- going to question one of the as it is we recently planted the actors strike zone technician columnists buildings sprout. All of the magical. The bottom of the positives is your mind it would be like college. And what sort sense -- now -- and other sources don't -- until spring which is correct. Well there's and turn their active growth so I would go ahead and feed them now. Okay do you think like what stimulate all of which used in all purpose fertilized. Look -- -- I don't kill the patient about the terms but it is the. Right. And it. It's America and many of the slow release fertilizers are temperature dependent and they don't work well. -- in the winter months so I would recommend using. -- a -- analysis. Fertilizer. Something like. AAA. Would be fine and if they use a low grade Internet. Okay and the question is -- statement as a a -- treatment must be nine years old. And tree is beautiful the fruit is beautiful but we've cut I think it is that -- look when -- cut it open is so. What caused. Well what probably happened is the the root stock grew and you're harvesting fruit from the root stock which could be a sour. Orange or. Trying to fully it launched. I was so there's nothing they can do about that right yeah yeah. -- Get so much an issue. Thank you thank you for tuning in to the guard and channel. I enjoyed it and Dan DL do you act next week with a regular program.
