Unusual warm weather
Here in the south we have been having unusually warm temps for this time of year. Turf grass is still green when it should be sleeping, Perennials are still in bloom, and temps have been anywhere from 10-25 degrees above average.
My question is this; I'm wondering how this weather may effect next summer in terms of pests? It seems that everything out here is confused. I expect a lot of die-back from all these plants that are trying to grow when we do get a good cold snap, but what about the critters? How are they reacting to the warm temps? What kink of problems may arise early in the summer?
