Guineas ar Great!
We let our 8-week old guineas out of their house earlier this week. What a difference a week has made. I have no more squash bugs, they were beginning to take over, and the grasshoppers are disappearing like mad. Before my basil was starting to be eaten to the nub, you couldn't walk through the yard with out a barrage of them flying at you and away from you, and they were crawling all over the place No so much any more! The little keets have been eating so many bugs that today was the first day in several that they ate any of their feed. I will have to watch my tomatoes as they ripen, but it will be worth it!
