It’s fall and with the crisp air comes a time to relax and forget about the garden. Or can you? You might not be able to see them, but those garden pests you battled all summer are still lurking, waiting to ruin your plants next spring.

They have laid their eggs in your lovely dark, rich top soil and are settling down for a long winter’s nap. Fall is the best time for you to get a handle on insects in your garden. You’ll be glad you did when spring rolls around.
