TIP 1: Use diatomaceous earth on slugs; it causes them to dry up and die. It is also pet friendly.
TIP 2: Check for lacebug damage on azaleas. The leaves look stippled yellow or whitish and if you turn the leaf over, you will see small black dots on the underside. Use Sevin, Insecticidal Soap or Year Round Oil. Spray the tops and bottoms of all leaves.
