Well, the asparagus is up and the bugs seem to know just when to come. Went out to harvest the first batch and found them covered with spotted asparagus beetles. Here is a picture in case you were wondering what they look like.
I don't use chemicals in the garden and will be out of town for the next 3-4 days. I think the only thing I can do is hand pick as many as possible before I leave.

You could make your own home made garlic or soap sprays. This spray will repel the insect. Spray as needed. There are a lot of recipes on the internet for making these organic sprays. They do work.
