Hello,

My cascade hops have produced some beautiful flowers
but when I picked a couple the other day I noticed
some small red bugs crawling inside the leaves of the
flowers. Should I wash the hops before I package them
away for storage to get rid of these pest?

Also, what is the best indicator for harvest time? The
buds had the yellow resin inside but had very little hop
aroma.
