Japanese beetle

I saw the first Japanese beetle of the season here in West michigan on July 8th.

Also we now have a few spurge and nutsedge problems. Minor crabgrass. What is your situation in your part of the country?

Your about a 1 week to 1 1/2 weeks behind us. We are full on with the jap beetles, pool skimmer has been full of em for a couple of days now. Crabgrass is a battle along curbs and edges with all the rain this spring and now 90 degree days.

North Carolina is getting our share of the Jap beetles. Started showing up on the roses about a week and half ago. Crab grass is rampant in beds, sidewalks and roadways. We're finally getting a little rainfall to go with our 90 degree days. Perfect storm for weeds and pests!!!! Same 'ol, same 'ol. We see 'em...we kill 'em.

Crabgrass , nutgrass, and lots of Jap beetle's here in PA.

Is it true that people using bettle traps actually bring more to their property?

Yes it's true.

If there is a Moist Sunny Sopt near the trap, you can be sure all the "Mommie Beetles" will be a layin' eggs nearby, had they not been caught in the trap.

Those traps are fine for Monitoring......When you catch some, Throw it away.
