It's like, if you cover it, they will come. Did I just trap a bunch in there, or are they intuitively finding the gaps? It's mostly flies that I'm seeing, and they're mostly in the top of the cover (or I guess that's just where they're obvious). How can I get rid of the bugs I've trapped IN my garden?

Funny thing is when we first put on the superlight insect barrier on my brother called it a bug trap after seeing some we had indeed traped inside. They wanted out and it was easy enough to free them by lifting the cover where they were just long enough to let them out. If there is a gap they will find their way in too, the wee Twisted Evil s.

I did have one fly under the tulle, but I just lifted the tulle, chased him out and tied the tulle back in place.

Don't know if I trapped him or he snuck under an edge. A couple of flies, I don't think it is a problem. Now if I find a cabbage worm moth in there....... The cabbage moths are out fluttering about, but none seem to have made it into the covered table top.

I love the barrier method. Very Happy If there are no gaps there will be no bugs, except for the ones already there of course.

Thanks for your input. Anyone had any luck sewing tulle together? The width of mine doesn't quite cover the full width of my bed, so I had to double up, and there's overlap on the top.

Thoughts?

Also, I do worry about keeping my zucchini from being pollinated. Is that a legitimate concern? I suppose I'll have to research pollinating by hand. Any other plants that NEED bugs?

Thanks all.

Tulle can be sewn...it's just a major pain.

You definitely will need to hand pollinate the zuchinni, but it's quite easy to do...just requires getting out to the garden each morning before the flowers close.

Thanks Christie. Sounds easy enough, except how early are we talking? Do I have to beat the sun? Cuz I'd rather deal with the bugs and let the bees do their job...

Jazzy,

I have hand pollinated, and it is not hard, you don't have to beat the sun. I did go out in the mornings, and then again in early afternoon to make sure I got to all of the open flowers.

Whew! 9 I can handle. Smile Do they open back up in the evenings? Sometimes I like to tuck in the garden after I've tucked the girls in bed.
