Week in Pictures

Be sure to check out Dr. Ed Nangle's CDGA Weekly Update for this week - some very timely information and a few pictures of Biltmore.

Frosts and leaves are the theme this time of year.  Leaves are pretty when they are turning color on the trees, but take labor and equipment to keep the course clear after they fall.  I think we are past the peak, but leaf drop will continue for a few more weeks.



Frost is common this time of year.


Seed Corn Beetle - a new pest has arrived at Biltmore.  The Seed Corn Beetle likes to make its home in the greens that look like a mound of sand.

Seed Corn Beetle holes.  They eat other bugs, which is good and so far only seen on our greens nursery, they are one of the few insects still active this time of year.
