A HUGE THANK YOU: To the large group of people who helped clean up the damage by vandals done at the pool, pavilion, fountain, and tennis courts the night of May 31. The extensiveness of the damage indicates that it was done by more than one person and took time to do. It would be interesting to know the reason it was done. Could it have been because the facilities are nice and only available to QCPOA members and their guests, could it have been done due to anger over some incident, or was it done for just plain meanness. Observation is one way we might be able to prevent such damage. If homeowners who live adjacent to the area looked out their windows during the night and if each time we all drive by the facilities we look for activities that should not be happening there and called 911 or 864-1810 to report those seen, it would be helpful. Fencing has been provided and locks installed on gates. Each homeowner has been given keys to use the facilities. It is very important to relock the gates after use. The Board of Directors will be considering various additional security measures.

FLOWERBED: THEY'RE BAAAACK! Adult Japanese beetles are 3/8" long metallic green beetles with hard, copper brown wing covers and are active for about a 6-week period. They like crape myrtle, rose-of-sharon, hollyhock, and other plants. In addition to treatment with milky spores and pesticides, commercially available traps attract the beetles, but probably do more harm than good as they draw more beetles than are actually caught. Another effective way to get rid of these pesky beetles is to pick them by hand and place in a pail of dish detergent soapy water. They will die within 2 minutes and the eggs are destroyed as well. Happy Gardening!
