Okay, this is more of a request than a post.
Does anyone know of natural ways to get rid of Japanese beetles?
This request is for a friend of mine whose plants are being eaten by the annoying insects.My plants, for some reason have not been affected.Maybe it’s because they don’t like the pepper I sprinkled on the flowers earlier in the year to deter the squirrels.Who knows?
I found one article that offers an environmentally friendly way to get rid of them.It had something to do with killing a few of them early in the season and placing them in a bucket of soapy water.
You’re supposed to leave the bucket in a prominent area so that when the other Japanese beetles catch a whiff of the scent of their dead brethren they’ll fly away thinking that the area is unsafe (no, I didn’t write the article, I’m only paraphrasing what it said).You can read the article here.
Has anyone tried it?
