    Can someone suggest any programs to control insects (japanese maples). I have about 3000 square feet of landscaping and need a good program. Any suggestions?

    thanks

    I'll ask the normal question, are you licensed? If so you should know what to apply. Talstar works great around here.

    Then I would suggest hiring a professional to do the job.

    The big problem with beetles is that you can kill them off on your property and the next week they fly in off adjoining properties.
