    Default Japanese Beetles

    Last year I had a hell of a time with these pests.They really did a job on my roses and I am looking for a way to combat them this year if they return.Anyone have any experience with what works to either prevent them or get rid of them?

    I had success with these but hang them away from where your plants are that you're trying to protect. They do attract the beetles!

    Thanks so much Russ quite helpful.Never had these in all the years I lived in the country,but as soon as I moved to town,they were here.At least I now know what to do come Spring.The traps have good reviews so will be sure to get some of those too! Thanks again.
