Nurturing our hydrangeas regardless of where we've lived, the Pres and I were a tad disappointed this year. Starting out strong, our Oak Leafs became inundated with Japanese Beetles. Each morning and late afternoon we would set out to capture as many as we could in our hand held jars. That was, I might add, in addition to the Japanese Beetle Traps!
This is what prompted the Pres to invest in Milky Spore with beneficial Nematodes, hoping to tackle the problem. Expensive initially but with four applications a year, until the product is at peak efficiency, we continue to treat the lawn and gardens our old standby.
When I began to do a little digging (not in the dirt) about grubs, I read that there are certain birds that indulge (YUCK!!) in this delicacy.
What do you do to prevent Japanese Beetles?
