    Hi Folks,

    Well here I am around 950 GDD and I saw my 1st Jap Beetle Adult today. This little critter must have been in it's own warmer micro-climate, as not expected until 1027 GDD.

    Last season it was a tank mix of Onyx (bifenthrin) and Merit 75WSP.

    This season I rotate to my Favorite (Orthene) and Merit 75 WSP.

    I prefer the Organophosphate with the Imidacloprid, for these Leaf Eating Machenes.

    Central and North Jersey guys...Get Ready.

    North of us.....They are coming.
