Are Soil Creatures Good Or Bad?
Dear Plant Doctor: I read your
--1 -r*li(*irvi!ck- i LA;?. n
tuiuiiui iviigiulwi; ojiu, uving u )uiu
person, I look forward to ideas and
hints on 'how-los" (such as your re
cent article on mole crickets).
1 have three questions 1 would
having your 'when' and how-to'
comments on.
The first is: how do I deal with
ground moles? I would think that
now it is wintertime I would not
have any trouble, but these pests arc
ruining my yard. It has become
Tunnel City, U.S.A.
The second question is: at what
time of the year do you fertilize
pccan trees and what kind of fertiliz
er is best? How much should be ap
plied?
The third and last question is:
when, how and what is the best time
of year to seed centipedegrass?
Thanks.
Answer: There is a good and bad
side to having mole problems.
Moles cat only insects and other
small soil inhabiting creatures.
Healthy soils will often be full of
earthworms and grubs (a favorite
mole food), making your yard an
unlimited "food bar" for your local
mole population.
Conventional wisdom will tell
you to use insecticides to control the
grubs thus making your yard unap
petizing for the mole. Carbaryl
(Sevin), diazinon (Spcctracide), iri
chlorfon (Proxol), or isofenphos
(Oftcnol) can be applied in spring,
summer, or fa!! for grub control, ac
cording to label instructions.
Early fall (August or September)
is the best time to apply insecticides
for moles. However, these chemicals
may also kill your earthworms and
many other soil creatures beneficial
to your lawn.
Mole traps arc the best control for
moles, however, check with you lo

cal game warden. In the past, stale
law forbade trapping moles without
a special permit. Seems crazy, but
that's a fact.
The one really unique bit of infor
mation you need to know about
pecan fertilization is that pecans re
quire greater quantities of zinc than
other crops. I am sending you two
publications that will answer all
your questions on pecan culture:
"Growing Pecans in North Caro
lina" (N.C. Ag. Extension Public
ation AG-81) and "Some Common
Pecan Diseases and Their Control
in North Carolina" (Plant Pathology
Information Note 139).
A great quantity of information is
available on the native American
pecan. I will dedicate a future article
to pecan culture (in graduate school
I took an entire course on the sub
ject).
One of the best 'free' publications
on the east coast is an out-of-print
document titled "Carolina Lawns"
by Dr. Arthur Bnineau (Crop
Science Dept. N.C. State Univer
sity). Dr. Bmncau has recently up
dated and revised this publication

Dear Plant Doctor: Will it hurt
my garden to till in old rotten fruit
or will it cause the worms to start''
Please send me some information on
this question.
Answer: No. Crush or drop old
fruit and incorporate this material
into your soil.
I routinely use my garden as a
composting area for all my veg
etable and fruit scraps during the
winter. Do not use any animal by
products or bones in your garden,
since this material tends to attract
neighborhood cntters!
I also do not recommend adding
fresh vegetable matter to your gar
den during the growing season since
decomposing organic matter will of
ten deprive your vegetable plants of
nitrogen. The best solution is to start
and maintain a regular compost pile
for all your garden and household
organic waste.
And yes, healthy high-organic
mauer soil (like compost) will at
tract beneficial earthworms, but
earthworms arc not harmful to your
garden. Maggots are not usually a
problem in a well-managed compost
pile or garden.
Send you gardening questions to
