Bindweed conquered

By Penny Stine

Check this out. This little miniature rose bush was smothered in bindweed last summer. I’m pretty certain that the bindweed mites I bought from the Palisade insectary last summer and carefully placed on this bush migrated underground and bred all winter long.

I looked at the backside of this plant and I could see a few curled and stunted bindweed stems, but nothing like the healthy bindweed in other parts of my yard (where the mites obviously didn’t get fully established).


I did notice some weird-looking bindweed coming up in a nearby bed, so I’m hoping the mites are still alive in other places in my yard, too.
If not, I can always go back to the insectary for more bindweed mites.
