    I hate these guys, Japanese beetles have made their appearance. Are there any controls after they have arrived that you can block them with? They are such a pest and destroy everything. I just noticed them yesterday for the first time so I am hoping I can keep them at bay somehow.

    Any suggestions or tricks you may have found would be awesome.

    I tried everything I could think of last year that was organic or natural and nothing worked. I think I will have to resort to chemicals this year on my rose bushes and other beetle attracting plants.

    I am thinking...

    Lets make a list of ALL the deterents for other insects and pests. Please consider the health of my roses first, and I will try to apply them to see how they do as a defense. Maybe something will work and we will finally have something to use.
