I have had smallish infestations of Japanese Beetles the last 2 years.
I have some bush roses which were the attraction in the first place.
I am just looking for non-chemical, or safer chemical treatments or tips to keep these buggers from eating my bean leafs and rose bushes!
A lot of people have said to get rid of the roses but they are one of my VERY FAVORITE things. So this year I just picked them off by hand.
I am sure there are grubs in the soil ready to come out this year in June. I plan on picking by hand again, but have heard a rumor about Milk Weed spore or milky spore or something like that - you sprinkle it on the soil.
Thanks for your help in advance - sorry if this is posted somewhere else by someone else.
