MSU and Extension experts share gardening advice on-line

The "Michigan landscape CAT alerts" are a great source of timely information about trees, gardens, plant pests, insect pests of the home, weather, and lots more. "CAT" stands for "crop advisory team" but you don't have to remember that. Already this year the staff (from MSU and Michigan Extension) has posted some nice articles on native trees, how to deal with ants in the home, the use of gypsum as a soil amendment and lots more. Plus you can search for articles from previous years. Highly recommended! Here's the link: http://ipmnews.msu.edu/landscape/ . UPDATE FROM 2/21: the location for the alerts is being moved to http://news.msue.msu.edu
