I read that the SafeServe Manager certification can be used to comply with the Cottage Food Law.  If so, how should I proceed to start selling my products?

Fall Armyworm Invasion Continues
Pending
The armyworms have taken over my angel trumpets. I killed the few that were on my plants one afternoon, the next morning it was like twigs were all that I was left with. The worms were hanging by the hundreds. I had them all over the ground crawling. I sprayed them but they did come back full force.

Congratulations to Dr. Eve Brantley for this recognition. Nothing that she accomplishes will be a surprise to me. I know her well, and she will bring much recognition to her department and Auburn University in the future before she is done. Life passes on, but good deeds never die.

Kudzu Bugs No Match for Old Man Winter’s Persistence
Approved
Jason,

All very good questions.

What makes the kudzu bug so invasive? There are many aspects to the kudzu bug that make it so successful in its new geographic range. The most important factor is the fact that the kudzu vine is pervasive throughout the southeastern. In the insects native regions (most of Asia) it feeds predominately on this vine, alongside some other legume species (namely Soy bean which also extensively grown in Asia). So, when it arrived in the U.S. in 2009 in Georgia, the bug(s) had no problem locating a food source and was able to feed and subsequently reproduce.

 They are not a threat to all plant life, certainly they are not a threat on grass. They do tend to utilize many plant species early in spring and late in fall when kudzu and soy are not available to them, but will only feed on other plants for a short amount of time. They are a serious threat, however, on legume species of all kinds, especially backyard beans.

In terms of safe pesticides, yes there are a few. Where do you plan on applying insecticides? you should never apply them directly to your home, or around residential structure. If you applying because they wound up on the outside of your home when they started to migrate, the best solution for that is power-washing them off your house. If they're inside use a vacuum to get ride of them. There are bio-rational insecticides, those that are Bt based that do well to kill the bugs.

Here's a link to an ACES publication on residential control, hope it helps. Please don't hesitate to ask anymore questions!

Kudzu Bugs No Match for Old Man Winter’s Persistence
Approved
Marie,

The kudzu bug will now be a consistent problem for all residents in Alabama, last summer it was detected in all 67 counties. The migratory times of this insect vary, and are dependent on the temperature. In spring, most likely, you will see the bugs March-April. Fall will differ a bit, and they may be seen again in September-October. To prevent them from getting into your potted plants you may want to keep them indoors in a sunny area until the migration of kudzu bugs has ceased, and you see them less around your home. If you keep them outdoors, the best way is to prevent them from getting on the plants through isolating plants in a screen, or some other means of excluding them from landing on your plants.

Hope that helps, please feel free to ask any other questions!
