·C Jul% 20, How Does Your Garden Grow? Use Sevin, But Beware Show Bees That You Care ; By Anne Howard ; Garden Editor I really pulled a boner in last Sunday's column and I hope most of you were out of town on vacations and didn't read it. Leroy Monday of Cross Lanes called me the next day. He was upset. And after I listened to him.' I was upset, too. He told me something I already knew, b u t . . . \1 told you last Sunday to get after the Japanese beetles with Sevin. But what I didn't explain was that Sevin will kill bees and you must be very, very careful where you put it. DON'T put Sevin on blossoms. Put it on the leaves, on the undersides of leaves, on the stalks, on the ground, but NOT on flowers or cornsilk or blooms. Don't spread it around on your lawn if you have clover blossoms. ' a 'You may say to yourselves. "Oh, what's a;bee. I'd rather get rid of the beetles." Well, let me tell you (as Monday told me) th'at if you get rid of the bees you may not have any corn -- or anything else for that matter. Bees are among the best of the pollinating agents that get things going. .You know about the birds and bees? Well, most of us have forgotten about the bees and if we don't start remembering soon we could be out there hand pollinating each ear of corn, each squash, each tomato. * "And where will you get honey? I was just sick after Monday's call. I knew about Sevin and bees. I was just in a hurry last week trying to get the column out and didn't think to warn you. ' I'M NOT SAYING that Sevin is the only insecticide that kills bees. I'm singling it out because I recommend that you use Sevin for Japanese beetles. 1 recommend Sevin because it is an excellent insecticide and it is safe for man and his pets. But it ISN'T safe for bees and that's a pity. I'm sure the Carbide people who invented Sevin are working on that problem. Hopefully they'll have a solution one of these days. They seem to have a solution for just about everything else. Before you use ANY insecticide, read the directions. If it says "harmful to bees!" please follow the directions on the label and remember what I've written here. It would be hard to find an insecticide that is safer to use than Sevin . . . if you're careful when and where you use it. Just keep this in mind: When you're dusting things with Sevin, don't get any on the blooms. Or on corn silk. If you can, wait until the fruit appears and the blooms are gone. Bees only touch the blossoms oi things usually. And any careless bee that lights on a leaf will just have to take his chances. MONDAY SAID it is terrible to see the destruction around bee hives during the blossoming period. He said his entire bee colony was wiped out one year. "The bees were stacked up in front of the hive six inches deep," he said. He added that "You can tell when the Japanese beetles are out because that's when people start using Sevin carelessly and the bees start dying. They start piling up around the hives. "Beetles run in cycles," he continued. "Some years there are a lot of them; other years not." He suggested we keep a look out and not go whole hog with the Sevin dust when it's not really needed. "Be selective in dusting. Be careful where you put it," he urged. In the spring when your fruit trees are in glorious bloom and you want to be sure the fruit doesn't have any worms later on, DON'T spray with something that's harmful to bees. Have you noticed how bees buzz around flowering fruit trees? If you kill them you may not have any fruit at all one of these days. * * » HERE'S AN item we thought might interest you. It's about a big rock that acts as a watch dog in a public rose garden. In the Queen Kapiolani Rose Garden in Honolulu stands this huge Kahuna Stone (Sacred Stone) whose consecrated name is Maka Nui (Great Eyes). It watches over the Queen's rose garden and has stopped all thievery. The garden is without a fence and open 24 hours a day, so this is quite a job for a sacred stone, even one with great mana (power). Stones in the Pacific are widely used for this purpose. Whether in Easter Island or the Temple Gardens of Japan, the principal rock is the guardian rock. In Hawaiian belief, the Sacred Rocks are the high born of the other world. They are temporary abodes in the transmigration of souls. It is for this reason that they are believed to have mystical powers. To move a stone like this one is quite a feat. Not only is it sacred, but it weighs over 15 tons. Most of the Hawaiian machine operators were unwilling to participate in such an endeavor. The job fell to the U. S. Army and the move was highly successful. Since the Great Eyes arrived, all pilferage at the garden has ceased. Coins, flowers and candles often are found beneath the stone, apparently put there as offerings or appeasement. The rose garden at Queen Kapiolani Park is one of the 114 Ail-American Rose Selections' accredited public rose gardens that are to be found in most of the large cities of the United States. I know exactly what would happen to a Kahuna Stone if it were transported to Almost Heaven. The next morning emblazoned on its front there would be large letters in bright red or white paint telling the world that Billy Joe loves Dreama Sue.

SPICES ADD QUICK VARIETY TO DISHES Herbs and spices can be your biggest aid in helping to create dishes with new taste intrigue, and this includes quick and easy ones which start with convenience products. Used judiciously, spices enhance the natural flavor of the food and add fresh excitement without changing the chemistry of its preparation. Be moderate in the amounts you use, but learn to be adventurous as to when and where you use seasoning. Experts advise that a dish must always be tasted just before serving.
