    ...what's the best plan of attack for homeowners against these evil little things? They're just starting to show up, and I want to get them before they do any real damage.

    got home tonite and the neighbor says to come over and look at these "things" he's infested with. oooohhhh noooo.....tokyo beetles!!! :realmad: found out i had a couple in my yard and the neighbor on the other side too. then the wife comes home and tells me the people up the street are infested with the little bastards too.
    is the pesticide you guys are talking about available OTC or do you need a license? thanks
