Also known as Sweet Bay and Laurus nobilis, this tree will get huge outdoors- but only if you live in a very warm climate.
At my house the potted Bay trees come indoors for the winter where it’s nice and warm. Since there are different types of Scale, they do not always look like the ones in this photo.
Scale insects have a crawling stage where they hitch a ride onto your plant and crawl around looking for a good place to settle down.
Just like aphids, scale also produces sticky shiny substance called honeydew. Honeydew is a great place for sooty molds to start growing.
You may have to treat twice, timing your sprays a week or so apart. Spray under the leaves and make sure to get the stem and buds, too.
If possible, try to leave the plant for a day or so in a shaded, or semi shaded area while the oil does its job.
If I put the infected bay leaves in the compost bin will the scale insects infect will they infect other things? Hi Sharon You can use the oil as directed on the label but make sure you don’t use it on a plant in full sun or in very warm weather.
Serious enthusiast of the blog, loads of your articles or blog posts have truly helped me out!
Healthy and Different Grilling IdeasBurgers, sausages and the like are always the go-to proteins when it comes to grilling. I came across this recipe for infused water by April Luca, and wanted to share it with all of you. Handful of fresh mint leaves, approximately 12-15 leaves (mint leaves add a refreshing flavor, along with helping with digestion in the liver.
How do you make sure that you and your kids are drinking enough water throughout the day, especially during the warmer spring and summer months?
The rinds have a ton of vitamin C and the pith or white part is high in bioflavonoids and limonene. There’s a bunch of easy recipes out there to make candied lemon rinds that leave you with a tasty snack and a lemon syrup.
Buying tip for lemons, heavier the better (light weight lemons will have thicker peels) and when you look at the end of the lemon where the stem used to be, you should see little lines radiating out in a star pattern, the more lines, the higher the mineral content.
Same as your family plus natural coconut water which has a naturally occurring electrolytes to combat dehydration!
Thanks so much I agree we all need to stay super hydrated and what better than lovely infused water.
Saturday, we hosted 35 friends for a traditional crawfish boil at our house in Southampton. Modification 2: I had some creole seasoning that I blended last week on hand -- a mix of onion powder, garlic powder, dried herbs (oregano, basil, thyme), peppers (black, white, cayenne, paprika) and celery seed -- so didn't use NOLAcuisine's mix.


Modification 4: If you're new to etouffee and Cajun cooking you may want to cut back on the spices that are called for in the recipe and taste and modify as needed right before serving -- I suggest cutting the hot sauce and creole seasoning in half. The most important step was rinsing off the spices that were left on the crawfish from the crawfish boil before making the stock or peeling the tails. No-Bake Cheesecake Shots, S’mores Brownie Pie, Peacock Cupcake Cake, Butterfly Cake, Almond Joy Magic Cookie Bars, Boston Cream Pie Cupcakes, and Caramel Apple Nachos will make sweet additions for your next party, get together, or just because. Plus your family will love dining on the Tropical Fruit Salad, Easy Pretzel Dogs, and Grilled Lemon Herb Chicken Salad for dinner…or just because! I always check plants before they come it to overwinter, but it looks like some scale insects hitched a ride on this one. They look like they belong there- just another lump or a bump, or maybe some scar tissue on the plant.
Often a host plant (which is always the infected one that you own) will attract just one type of scale.
When they find it they lock down tight on the plant and they suck the juice right out of your plants. I’ve been battling these little buggers for over two months and had no idea what to call them to find out what they were.
I usually set them apart in a lightly shaded area for a few days and re-spray if needed in a week to 10 days. LOL I’ve been finding lots of folks that get the ladybug larvae confused with scale as well. If you're just traveling in Bolivia you won't have time to try them all, but if you live in Bolivia I encourage you to expand your horizons and your palate.
With the temperatures rising, staying hydrated and making sure your kiddos are drinking enough water is super important.
You can squeeze a bit of the lemon juice into the water as well to give it a burst of citrus flavor. I did this by bathing the crawfish in huge pots of very cold and clean water, rinsing and repeating three times with pots of clean, fresh water until the water ran almost clear.
With the help of experts at LSU AgCenter AquaCulture, Crawfish Farming has becoming part science and art. When she's not defending herself in a light saber battle or saving the day with her little superheroes, she loves crafting and designing things for her house. Miss smarty plants here left her bay to grow outdoors and the weird ice and snow did it in. This infused water recipe boosts your immune system (which is something that this mom of 4 needs!) and helps with digestion, too.
So watching you go through this (and watching you be a mom by yourself, and clean up Hattie in the car after she got sick as you have to shoo away paparazzi, my heart was breaking). I added this in right before the roux, which I followed the stock, garlic and herbs as instructed.


She loves animals, shopping, traveling and just snuggling on the couch with her family while watching a movie or reading a good book.
Besides spraying with horticultural oil you can dab the scales with a cotton swab dipped in rubbing alcohol.
By the way, some of them really ARE food artists - they work with caterers to make events beautiful with truly amazing edible centerpieces. Santa Cruz, for example, is well-known for its steakhouses and outdoor environments. Since I started blogging, I've been to Morocco, Israel, Palestine, France and Italy -- check out my mouthwatering photos.
CruceA±os love grilling and socializing out in the open and the traditions of a€?serenadinga€? and a€?people watchinga€? date back to the colonial times when entire families would take to the city plazas on Sunday afternoons. Today, the custom of parading about is well-ingrained in society, as is the more modern version of a€?cruisinga€? up and down and around and around the main social thoroughfares even in the smallest towns, where young people frequently spent hours circling the plaza on foot, on motorcycles (loud!), and in their cars.
Unfortunately it is never good to see them this time of year since the tiny ones can overwinter on your plant and can become a big problem on indoor plants!
In La Paz, you might see this on the Prado or in San Miguel, in the city's southern Zone, for example. Many Bolivians are still accustomed to taking tea at about 4 or 5 in the afternoon.
Because we usually indulge at tea time, dinner (usually a lighter meal than lunch) is usually served around 8 or 9 p.m. You'll see this in large cities such as La Paz, Cochabamba, and Santa Cruz, and in most small towns. TarijeA±os haven't maintained the afternoon teatime tradition as much as in the rest of Bolivia. There is really no such thing as a€?typicala€? Bolivian food. Flavors, spices and cooking styles vary greatly from one region to the next and have been greatly influenced by Spanish, European and North American cuisine.
In the tropics where Santa Cruz is located, there is a strong Brazilian influence and many European and Asian restaurants, and because it is the nationa€™s cattle ranching area, many many steak-inspired meals.
Ice cream parlors are always brimming with locals and tourists alike in the hot tropical regions.
In colder Western Bolivia ita€™s not uncommon to take tea in the late afternoon and eat dinner late at night (9 or 10 pm), while you'd probably want to enjoy an ice cream for dessert after lunch as it might be too chilly to do so as the afternoon cools. Because Bolivians still enjoy their siesta time (when businesses and stores close at midday anytime between 12 and 3) lunch is usually the largest meal of the day. The cities tend to be less busy midday when many people go home to rest and have lunch with their families. In the West, where nighttime is cool or cold, lunch is the main meal, unless you're dining out with friends.
