What's not to love about the scent lilacs produce? Heavenly, no two ways about it. I have several that were here when we bought this place but they just struggle and straggle along. Close examination shows small holes in the bark with bugs inside. A neighbor told me I could fish around in the holes to kill the bugs, but surely there must be a better way. Anyone know anything about lilacs and the bugs that feed *in* them?
May each day bring you sunshine and joy in life, in large and small servings.
Peace on Earth and Goodwill to All.
