Golden Rod: Emergency Winter Bait

Recommended Posts

I always wondered how insects survived winter- who knew they were such sneaky stowaways! Great information Mike- I will be sure to remember that.

Good vid.

Yes, they are much larger in Autumn through Winter. We usually use them for fishing bait. Mostly fat, they taste like butter. Indeed, have "buttered" my toast with them many times. In some areas there are hundreds of galls in close proximity. Still, Ant and wasp larvae are much easier to harvest in significant numbers. Though as you noted, that time of year our options are quite limited.

The large holes are where birds went after the grubs.
