Well, what can I say...we just put up two awesome Japanese beetle traps that seem to be kicking real beetle butt. We set them up at about noon today and, by 3 p.m. we emptied them three times. Each time we filled a Wal-Mart plastic bag from each trap. That means we had 6 bags full of the squirming little critters.
The traps we purchased were highly recommended but we had no idea they'd be so successful.
By 4 this afternoon we rigged up a different "bagging" system because we were tired from emptying and disposing of the crappy little beasts.
Holy cow! I'm am fearful that I'm going to dream of these beetles like Arthur Hitchcock's "birds." OMIGOSH!!!
I hope our plum trees are thankful of our efforts.
