As I said, I don't usually spray but have no other choice. Orthene is a pretty powerful spray.
I just walked around, they're out now that the rain stopped & it's getting warmer.
Thats the stuff : ) Think it will work on these guys?

They're here...I just check my trees and they have already started to devour them : ( Heading to Lowes for some spray and some bags before I end up with tree branches with swiss cheese looking leafs!!!

When did they go? The Japanese beetle was introduced to America at Dreer's nursery in Riverton NJ back in the day.

Here's the stuff you should use, but it takes a couple of years to take hold.

Traps just attract more than you would have had without traps

All kidding aside:

I'm very sorry about your beetle problem and I hope you'll be able to rid of at least most of them. Have a Happy 4th!

NJguy, you are a treasure! I should have come across this post when I had about 35 rose bushes, and, about two years' later, I began to fight the bettles. I put a free advertisement in the paper, this lady came with her spouse, and they dugged them all! I love roses, was even a Rosarian, but the bettles were way too much for me to handle.

Thanks for the compliment but all I did was look it up on eHow

My Mom's grass had a case of grubs about 5 years ago - we peeled back the dirt and seen them all, eliminated what was seen by the naked eye and put on this white powder stuff (never got the name of it) then put new sod. Everything has been good there since.

milky spore disease, Nematodes and Pyrethrum.. I don't like using a lot of poisons but Pyrethrum is made from Mum flowers so it's sorta natural.

I have a small garden, I haven't seen any beetles (two groundhogs, but that's another issue) as of yet BUT my parents who literally live 2 miles away from me have found hundreds of them in their pool on some mornings and my Dad has three catchers up and said that there had to be at least 200 per bag after only having the bags out for 3 days!

Going to head to Lowe's tomorrow and prepare myself!

Yuck!
