What do you do when you see damaging insects such as aphids sucking on your plants?
Do you reach for the nearest bottle of insecticide? Pluck them off or spray them with a hose?
Believe it or not, sometimes the best thing is to do nothing. I learned this lesson long ago before I went to school to become a horticulturist.
I realize that it is hard to think of doing anything in the garden, much less step outside with the heat wave that we have been experiencing in the Southwest.
