We loved these swag ideas & wanted to share them with you!

Japanese Beetles: Q&A  
Wednesday, August 10, 2011, 08:00 AM - Landscaping

[Photo credit: Jeff Hahn]

The Extension Office at the U of M recently published an informative article about the Japanese Beetle. Here is just a snippet...

Q: Are there any non-chemical methods for managing Japanese Beetles?

A: The best method is physical removal. A good way to do this is to take a pail of soapy water and brush them off or pick them off by hand so they end up in the pail. The soapy water kills them. If you just knock them off plants, they will fly and return to them. It is best to do this right away in the morning or in evening when they are less active.

For the complete Q&A, go to the University of Minnesota's website.
