Starting To See Japanese Beetles - Now What

Post  twodaend on 7/11/2012, 8:31 pm

For the last week or two, I have seen 1 or 2 critters on my corn leaves. I have now found out that they are Japanese Beetles. I usually just flick them off whenever I see them. However, today I saw about six or so in a ball on my corn leaf, so I just flicked the whole ball, BAM!!!

Previously I had an issue with flea beetles and i used Safer® Brand EndALL™ Insect Killer. So far the flea beetle population has dropped. This stuff is supposed to take care of Japanese Beetles too, but I don't think it is working as well. Is there anything else I can do to rid these beetles? I have heard that putting traps out only attracts more.

I put up a trap for them on either side off my garden about 15-20ft away. I have lots in the bags/dead already. And the attack on my green beans seems to have slowed right down.

Good luck!
