So sorry, Bolledeig. Sit, visit, play some of the games! Peruse the forums. A great bunch of folks here, and some of us are late-nighters! (not me tonight, early eye appointment tomorrow).

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.

i'm not sure how it would affect your trees, but if you spread grubex on your lawn to kill grubs, you'll solve a lot of the jap beetle problem, k.t.h..

the grubs are baby beetles (what's the word i'm looking for, the soft bodied baby stage of a beetles life - pupa?)
