Japanese Beetles

The shiny green pests are back, looking for our plants and destroying our crops. These beetles can be extremely destructive and it has been known that municipalities and counties will begin a large trapping program at the first sign of these beetles. Home owners follow the same route to control these Japanese Beetles with traps. My recommendation is is you are going to use Japanese Beetle traps then use alot of them, don't be stingy or cheap. This will give you best coverage and control and it will give a broader area of coverage. There are natural enemies of Japanese Beetles that can be used, but I would assume that that method would be used more in a crop situation. Traps can of course be found on the web at any DIY pest control product website or at your local hardware store. Happy Trapping.
