I'm in Central PA and have seen very few beetles or chafers this year. Whats
Perhaps a VERY COLD WINTER???
Beetles alive and well here
Right on GGD time for the Japs.....1000+ GDD.
They are running strong in my neck of the woods.
We haven't seen any either.. somethings up.. Perhaps the calm before the storm
I'm surprised they are flying in Jersey already. I have to admit, I never looked into GDD for beetles, I just look for them. Haven't seen a single one of Japanese, chafer,
asian or Orientals yet. It's usually mid July here, as I recall.
very few here too! last year was a very light year for them also.. maybe they drowned with all the rain? lol
One thing that can suppress jap beetles is if the soil is dry & hard when they need to lay their eggs. So if there was drought last year at that time, less eggs survived.
Our GDD's hit last week here for Japanese beetles, and exactly that same day they were pinging off the windshield! couldn't have planned it any better!
Have not seen one yet. Last two years they were all over the place.
None in Erie yet. We had a very snowy winter and a cold, dry spring. I'm sure they'll be here, just a little later this year.
