Asparagus beetles is correct, hit them with sevin dust.
Got twenty today mostly large female tops that havent started to get thin with all the little branches still a pretty good day no one else has hit my spots and a few of the ones that are late came up again I'm sure the rain helped.
All the spots I pick wild asparagus have started to go to seed. It's been so dry here and overall too warm. The stuff in my backyard grew 2 feet in about 2 days. Also I noticed some small red bugs on some of the stalks. Anyone know how to eradicate those? Not sure if those are asparagus beetles, or something else.
Driving home from the store yesterday I went the back way got 20 stalks. Don't do this often but will try more often. Most of the stalks were nice and thick.
got 16 more today that rain we had up here helped a lot
Picked about 30 spears yesterday. The rain definitely helped. Manitowoc county.
still picking wild and from the garden here in WC IL. thought it was about done but we've got almost 5 inches of rain in the last two weeks. found two dozen spears in a wild spot yesterday, hard to see with the grass and weeds getting tall.
asparagus and venison filets on the grill this afternoon!
got 22 today just starting to pop with all the rain we had in the last couple days they will be coming on strong washburn county didnt check all my spots either
I took another walk today and found 16 spears. As I was checking out a patch I heard a rustling sound and about 5' away out popped a hen turkey. After I cut what I wanted I checked where she came from and found the nest with a dozen eggs in it. I left her alone as she didn't run far.
