I was having serious thoughts about loading up with birdshot this morning. My strawberries and fruit trees are really hurting.

I have bagobugs in the neighbors yard, they are making a dent but the onslaught is huge. I have resorted to hand picking them and putting them in a clear bottle to die in the sun, then composting them.

If my local range didn't look down on shooting bottles/trash I would take them out for some "therapy".

Ain't it the truth. They're wrecking havoc on my roses right now.

This is the worst year I've had. They're in my beans, they're in my flowers.

Grrr..

do exactly what he says and about half way through the video you'll see a guy shooting a teeny tiny machine gun on top of a cooler. That would be the gun I would recommend!

If your garden has survived the fusilade, you'll have to go to the home store and get the appropriate bug spray to deal with the adults, along with the bag-a-bug thingies. To prevent them, you ( and your whole neighborhood) will need to put doen milky spore in the Spring to kill their larvae.

Even though the title is a good attempt, this really isn't gun related. Sorry ... closed.
