Guide Rock By Sandy Larkey Not much news from Guide Rock this week; apparently nobody's been going anywhere or doing anything. But the really big news is the rain. Wow! What's that old saying about "when it rains, it pours?" Oris that just the Morton Salt slogan? Anyway, it really poured Thursday night. I gotcaught out in it. My quilt guild meets on the second Thursday of eacy month, and that was Thursday. As"acting president" I called the meet- ing to order at 7:04 p.m. in the parking lot of the Church of Christ in Superior, said "There has been a motion to ad- journ, all in favor..." Without objec- tion, all dashed for their cars. Having to drive 20 miles, I didn't make it home before the storm--and boy was it a gullywasher! Our rain gauge Friday morning indicated 2.6 inches. Brandie at Ely' s reports they' re excited about the rain. She had more than 3 inches at her place and a li.ttle bit of hail, "not enough to do any dam- age." She also reported their wheat harvest was about half done. When I asked Lester at CPI "What news?" he said "It rained!" His rain gauge read 2.75 inches. Several miles north of Guide Rock, people were reporting 4.80 inches. Lester is also quite pleased with the wheat harvest so far. Yield is about average and the quality has been good. I speculated that the quality night not be so good after the rain, and he said he was willing to trade every bit of grain deterioration for the rain we had. Congratulations to Danny Shipman on winning the post as county commis- sioner for the Guide Rock area. He is filling Jess Petsch' s place on the board. Seven people were at Wednesday Coffee at the Senior Center. We had a black walnut cake and a wide assort- ment of cookies and brownies, and lots of conversation. We didn't solve any of the world' s ills--but then, we didn't really try. Anyway, good times, good fellowshi p and good food. Join us some time. Since the weather forecast for the next few days indicates a fair chance of rain, the garage project is temporarily in abeyance. Now maybe we'll have a chance to rest our sore, aching muscles. And I can get back to my sewing room! As always, a box at the post office, email ( or tele- phone phone me (402-257-2037). I'll print everything that's fit to print-- and maybe a few things that aren't.

McXtensions By Darci McGee, UNL Extension Bagworm Control It's that time of year again, which you have been nervously anticipating-- dealing with that insect pest called the bagworm. Bagworms are hatching, so now is the time to monitor for their presence on different e,ergreen trees and shrubs. So, what can you use to minimize the damage caused by bagworm caterpil- tars? If present, apply insecticides. A number of insecticides labeled for control or suppression ofbagworms include acephate (Orthene), Bacillus thuringiensis subsp. Kurstaki (Dipel, Thuricide), cyfluthrin (Tempo), trichlo- rfon (Dylox), indoxacarb (Provaunt), chlorantraniliprole (Acelepryn), and spinosad (Conserve). Some of these active ingredients are often available and sold under different trade names. Furthermore, several of these mate- rials may not be available to homeowners. Insecticide applications are most effective on the young cater- pillars. Older caterpillars in the bags may be 3/4 inch long and are more difficult to control or obtain sufficient mortality. Females tend to feed less as they prepare for reproduction, which reduces their susceptibility to insecti- cide sprays and any residues. The bacterium Bacillus thurin- giensis is highly active on young cater- pillars; however, the rhaterial must be ingested to be effective, so thorough coverage of all plant parts is essential. Spinosad (Conserve) works by contact and ingestion, and is extremely effec- tive in suppressing bagworm popula- tions. Cyfluthrin (Tempo), trichlorfon (Dylox), and indoxacarb (Provaunt) are typically used against the larger caterpillars. Again, thorough coverage of all plant parts is essential, especially the tops of trees and shrubs, where bagworms commonly initiate feeding.
