Managing Japanese Beetles in the Home Landscape

Japanese Beetles are a pest to many of our plants.  This will cover the do’s and don’ts of managing these insects in your garden.

Additional Information

Understanding the beetle’s life cycle and aggregation tendencies is key to management.  You will learn that grubs in your lawn may not be Japanese Beetles and that annual grub treatment is not always warranted.  Management of Japanese Beetles by the least toxic methods is best for you, the birds, the bees, butterflies and the environment.
