I still don't get it
It was a joke with @Rob Stockley. He just needed 2 bites of the cherry. Of course I know it is Sunday today.
Neither did I.
Must be all that Gusathion we ingested as kids
Me either. Perhaps it's a Palmerston North thing.
You are right , I was thinking of mammals.
I occasionally see those beetles here but not as many as I used to see around Nelson lakes national parks.
The Scarab has some beautiful colours, heh !
Wild trout certainly like them.
Rust now in Taranaki....Potentially devastating Myrtle rust found at Taranaki nursery
It would be interesting to know what species it was found on.
Why have both locations that tested positive been nursery?
"Growing conditions in nurseries are seen as ideal for the fungus with many vulnerable young plants in sheltered, warm and damp environments."
And I imagine nurserymen are more likely than most to be keeping an eye out and recognising what they're seeing.
Maybe it is because the people in the Nursery are working with plants all day and also they know what to look for......
In a conversation the other day some pop up and said maybe someone summgle a Manuka plant in for Australia that had a higher DNA that we have here
Seems like they make life hell if you report it. But in the same breath imply it's futile
I was told today it's been found in two locations on great barrier. The horse may well have bolted on this one.
Also been found in Taranaki. So yes, the horse has bolted. and come back. and bolted again just to show it can.
I expect it is in our area somewhere.
If it blows across the Tasman and is in Taranaki I can not see how it is not here .
But if it is we will not notice the extent till next summer when the temps increase into the zone the rust likes to grow in .
Find something and report it to MPI and the tendency is for them to close you down for the duration as happened with a possible EFB report a few years back. No compensation. As it is beekeepers in the myrtle rust affected areas have been asked not to move their hives. I can just see the corporate's obeying that one.
Hebe's seem to be a good source for my bees.
Is it susceptible to rust ?
We are due to pick up about 800 native plants on Monday for riparian planting,just got a call from taranaki regional council and all plant pickups have been postponed for an undetermined time .
Suspension has come from mpi
