    How do I get rid of a bug that invades my garden in Bolsover Ontario. It usually appears the first week in June and stays for about a month. I understand that putting diatimascious earth in the ground is the only way to stop them from maturing. However, I live on and acre and a half and it is actually impossible and costly to do this procedure. I do pick them off of the plants and trees and drown them in water and liquid detergent. I know I get thousands and thousands of these bugs. I then put them in a clear plastic bag, tie the bag and put them in the garbage. Can you help me in getting rid of them any other way other than drowning them? Look forward to your thoughts on this nasty bug. I even understand that birds will not eat them as they are poisonous to birds. Thanks so much.
