Look for spring, catch up on fall
They talk about February and groundhogs. Well we don’t have any groundhogs at Quigley Spur in the woods of Union Parish. Hogs here are stray hogs or wild hogs. What we look for are sapsuckers on your trees making rings of circles. The first fresh circle means spring is here. If you want to protect your trees spray the trunk with Orthene, it will kill the bugs they feed on. The first dead skunk you see on the road is an indication of spring.
