Japanese beetles


We have Japanese beetles that are having a major buffet in our backyard. They have nearly destroyed a climbing hydrangea , our birch tree, and a couple of potted geraniums. They have been ruthless. Any ideas on how we can get rid of them besides picking them off the plant


Hi, I am very sorry to hear about the garden damage done by Japanese beetles.  These troublesome pests love hot weather thus it has been the perfect summer for them.  In fact we have answered more Japanese beetle questions this year than I can remember!  I have enclosed a link to one such reply recently posted, but additionally you can enter the term “Japanese beetle” into the search on our main page website, you will find several replies.  Hopefully you will find a strategy that will work for you.

Best of luck!
