A New Insect? Not Likely.
Well this ain't a beetle, but it is a pest all the same. I'm a sunflower seed guy myself, I carry a bag around in my cart and often have a mouthful while I am out and about. I do not spit seeds on fine turf areas out of respect for other golfers. While fairways and tees might not be as big a issue, spitting sunflower seeds on greens is. There is no reason a person should have to pick up another person's sunflower seed shells so they can putt. Not only is it a bit disrespectful, it is a tad bit gross too. Let's keep the shells in the rough and respect our fellow golfers a bit more.
And on a lighter note... Stump holes are being sodded, most landscape beds have a fresh layer of mulch, and a lot of little things are getting done. We will soon start addressing cart path edges around greens and tees. I think it's gonna warm up soon, I did wear shorts today but apparently that might have been a wee bit optimistic. I started the day with rain pants and a decent jacket on because it was cold...
