♪. Shelby: BACK WITH ROBERT BALEK HORTICULTURE SPECIAL I. HI SHELLEY. Shelby: HIGH ROBERT. HE ALWAYS DOES THAT. THIS LITTLE BUY A LITTLE CATERPILLAR. CAN YOU BELIEVE THIS? HE IS LAYING ON HIS HEAD. YOU CAN SEE HOW BIG HE IS. HE IS MASSIVE. WHAT KIND OF CATERPILLAR IS IT? IT IS A HICKORY HORNED DEVIL. BECAUSE HE LOOKS LEVELLISH WITH HIS HORNS ON HIM BUT HE IS ABSOLUTELY HARMLESS. PEOPLE ARE FINDING THESE. THIS IS A GOOD YEAR FOR THE HICKORY HORN CATERPILLAR. IT TURNED NO THE WALNUT MOTH. IT IS SMALLER THAN THE CATERPILLAR. IT IS A BEAUTIFUL INSECT. LOOK HOW HE IS CRAWLING ACROSS THERE. WHEN I FIND THEM THEY START PLAYING WITH. THEY NEED TO BE RELEASED BACK. THEY ARE NOT HARMFUL THEY ARE NOT POISONOUS. THEY ARE JUST BEAUTIFUL. THERE IS THE ADULT RIGHT THERE. AS YOU CAN SEE A WALNUT MOTH. Shelby: THE HORNS ON THAT ONE IS CRAZY. AS THEY GROW THE HORNS GET BIGGER. THIS IS A MEDIUM SIZED ONE. THIS IS 4 TO 15 INCHES LONG. Shelby: I HAVE NEVER COME ACROSS SOMETHING LIKE THAT. YOU NEED TO HAVE HICKORY AND WALNUT TREES. Shelby: HE IS SO PRETTY LETTING HIM CRAWL ALL OVER US. IT FEELS SO NEAT ALL OF THOSE FEET. I THINK THEY ARE CUTE. THIS ONE IS REALLY NEAT. HE WAS BROUGHT NO THE EXTENSION OFFICE FOR IDENTIFICATION PURPOSES. LOOK AT HIM. HE IS EXPLORING THE WORLD. Shelby: I TURNED HIM OVER ANTICELED HIS LITTLE TUMMY. YOU ALSO WANTED TO TELL US ABOUT BRINGING ORGANIC BACK TO YOUR LAWN. ORGANIC VALUES IN OUR LANDSCAPE. ONE OF THE BIGGEST CHEMICALS IN OUR LANDSCAPE IS OUR LAWN. WE CAN DO ORGANIC LAWNS WITHOUT THE TOXIC CHEMICALS THAT WE WOULD HAVE. WHAT WE WANT TO DO THEN IS EXTENSION HAS SOME INFORMATION CALLED NATIONAL LAWN CARE WE USE THINGS LIKE ORGANIC FERTILIZERS AND THINGS THAT ARE BROUGHT TO US ANIMAL WASTE FACILITIES WHICH ARE ORGANIC MATERIALS THAT WE CAN PUT NO OUR LAWNS INSTEAD OF CHEMICAL. THEY DON’T HAVE THE SALTS IN THEM THAT DESTROY THE SOIL. MUCH MORE NATIONAL. Shelby: I AM ALL FOR NATIONAL IF WE CAN DO IT. THERE ARE OTHER THINGS YOU CAN DO BESIDES USING ORGANIC PRODUCTS YOU CAN USE THINGS LIKE — EVEN IF YOU JUST OVER SEED YOUR LAWN TO THICKEN IT UP A LITTLE BIT THAT KEEPS OUT SOME OF THE WEEDS. YOU DON’T HAVE TO USE WEED KILLERS. SHE IS HOLDING THAT CAT A PILL PILLAR EARLIER. Shelby: I LOVE LITTLE CREATURES. THOSE ARE GREAT WAYS TO BE ABLE TO BRING ORGANIC TO YOUR YARD INSTEAD OF ALL OF THE CHEMICALS. RIGHT, RIGHT. EVEN THE WEED KILLERS. THE FERTILIZERS THERE ARE WAYS TO GROWN A NICE LAWN WITHOUT USING THOSE. IN AN EARLIER SEGMENT WE TALKED ABOUT CLOVER THAT IS ANOTHER WAY TO DO THINGS. YOU HAVE AN ORGANIC LAWN YOU ARE PROBABLY GOING TO REALIZE YOU WILL HAVE A FEW WEEDS HERE AND THERE. IF YOU HAVE THE RIGHT KIND OF WEEDS LIKE CLOVER THEY CAN CONTRIBUTE BY POLLINATING AND PUTTING THAT NITROGEN BACK IN THE SOIL. Shelby: I DO LIKE CLOVER THE WAY IT SMELLS. THERE ARE A LOT OF LITTLE WEEDS THAT I THINK ARE PRETTY. LIKE A GYMNAST. GOSH HE IS NEAT. I LIKE WHEN YOU BRING US IN A CRITTER EXCEPT THE JAPANESE BEETLE. I WILL NEVER FORGET THE SMELL OF THOSE. THIS LITTLE GUY IS GREAT. BRING ME A FROG NEXT TIME. I WANT TO HOLD A BULL FROG SO BAD. THINK YOU CAN GET A HOLD OF ONE OF THOSE FOR ME? IF I DO HE IS COMING TO YOU. YOU CAN FIND INFORMATION ON NATIONAL LAWN CARE. Shelby: THANKS FOR YOUR
