I had never heard of vacuuming up garden pests until a couple of days ago. I am very willing to try this on our cucumber beetles, because they are too fast to hand-pick. I’ll need to see if we have a long enough extension cord as the vac is just posing for a picture here. If this method works I will be very happy! I’ll just have to find a way of emptying it without letting the beetles escape. And that’s the dirt on the Dirt Devil.
Incidentally, while looking up the information on vacs I saw information here about using filled paper vacuum bags or just the contents thereof as a mulch or a compost additive. I might give that a try.
