Gardening Season is here and many of you have delicious vegetation growing and sprouting. You also may have a problem with bugs and pests. I recently went out to look at my garden and discovered the leaves on my bean plants have little holes in them and look like spider webs….and every now and then I saw this little beetle on the leaves….after doing research I discovered those little critters are the very well known Japanese beetle. I had some Seven dust laying around and sprinkled a little on each plant…..then a few hours later it rained…..I guess I should have looked at the forecast. Now I’m not a big fan of spraying my garden down with all kinds of pesticides, so I got to thinking of other ways I could get rid of these beetles on my plants. Since I work here at Dickey Bub, I know we have the RESCUE! Japanese Beetle bags….the associates here at Dickey Bub told me these bags work really well and LOTS of people come in and buy them. The bag doesn’t require any kind of pesticide or chemical application on my plants, so that was a plus as well!
Now placement is important when you are deciding where to hang this bag outside…..you don’t want to put it right inside your garden next to your plants…since the beetles are attracted to the bags, you don’t want them to stop at your lush vegetation and never make it to the bag….it is suggested that the traps should be used about 30 feet away from desired foliage and to place them next to a non-flowering tree or shrub, such as a pine tree or boxwood, which is not attractive to the beetles.
This beetle bag will not attract beetles from miles away….however it will lure beetles that are in the area of the beetle bag from 100 to 200 yards.
The RESCUE! Japanese Beetle bag is currently not available for resale here on our website but they are available in-store(see store locations)….so if you are experiencing the same problem as me, take a look at the product. Each bag costs between $7-$8 per bag. The bags are a pretty decent size and I was able to reuse mine twice. If you want to read more about the RESCUE! Japanese Beetle Bag, how it works and what others say about it, go to the manufacturer’s official website HERE to read on!
This is only my second year planting a garden…so from gardener to gardener, give me your advice on natural ways you keep bugs away from your garden and vegetation. -Andrea B.
If you need to make a quick run to the store, all Dickey Bub stores will be closing early at 5 p.m. on 4th of July. If any of you are like me, I really dislike going into Wal-Mart on holidays and try to avoid it at all costs. Dickey Bub has a lot of what you may need on July 4th…if you just need to pick up some extra charcoal, coolers, lawn chairs, American flags, fish breading, bug spray, soda, snacks, ect….we have it….and it will be less hectic than going to Wal-Mart. We also have lots of floating devices for those who are hitting the river this holiday. So keep us in mind while you celebrate our Nation’s Independence and spend time with your friends and family.

The Carhartt sleeveless tee has been a popular seller so far this year. The material isn’t super heavy so you won’t get too hot working in it. There’s no fancy graphic work on it; but there is a small Carhartt logo patch on the left pocket. This isn’t a fitted shirt, so the material shouldn’t cling to your body. It has a tagless neck label and is available in 4 different colors for you convenience. I think the reason this is such a great seller is because it’s a plain sleeveless tee….and sometimes that’s all you need. Check it out for yourself by going to the product page.
We recently added the Dickies Pocket Tank – FS060 to the Dickey Bub website. I have been in love with the Dickies tank top the day we added it to our online store! The material is really soft and the little pocket on the left side of the tank adds a little something extra that other tank tops don’t have. The top is available in pink, green or purple for only $12.99 each, which is a competitive price compared to other online stores. This is a tank top you can wear just as it is…there’s no need to wear it as an under-shirt. For more info about this tank top, please visit the product page.
