The Bees Knees

Honey bees

Honey bees

Yesterday,  three other Wolbert's techs and I had the privilege of attending a "Bee Symposium" held at the Wild Horse Wind and Solar Facility as part of our ongoing education requirements. The subject was Bees:  Current Science and Solutions and our speaker was Dr. Veldon Sorenson, who is both a longtime beekeeper and scientist.

I was totally captivated. His knowledge and passion for his bees was infectious. He took us through all the different stages and habits of bee life, from "beeing" cared for from egg to larvae, the different jobs in a hive, and even how a queen is made.  For example

Rats, mice and stress


Although there are several rodents that could be considered pests in the Northwest, rats and mice are the 2 species noted for consistently infesting and damaging homes and businesses as well as posing a health risk to humans. Mice have been an ongoing part of the pest control challenge here in the Northwest for as long as there have been settlements here. Norway rats have plagued the waterfronts of Puget Sound for nearly as long, having been accidentally imported on ships from Europe.

Recently, our shipping industry has given rise to a fairly new rodent pest in the Northwest, The Asiatic Tree Rat or more commonly, Roof Rat. These rats are capable of traveling long distances on power lines, trees and are happy to adapt to all kinds of environmental and weather conditions. Populations of these vermin have exploded exponentially over the last few years and are now being seen all over Thurston County and elsewhere around developed Puget Sound areas. The pest control industry has had to adjust quickly to this new challenge.

Roses and arborvitae are among their favorite treats and it can be particularly disappointing to anticipate gorgeous blooms and wake up to find our beautiful rose buds and blooms neatly clipped off.

Wet Spring

spring rain treesOnce again, extended wet weather in our area (we’re on track for record rainfall for the month of March), is setting us up for the potential for serious plant fungus infections and damage. As it continues to rain, pathogens awakened by moisture and rising temperatures, are then splashed or blown onto tender, emerging leaves or blossoms where the damage then begins. Ideally, we would like to have fungicide in place on all your fungus-prone trees and plants before any significant spring rainfall begins, but this is rarely a possibility.
