How to Exterminate Japanese Beetles?

Friday, 20. June 2014 8:04

Japanese beetles cause a lot of nuisance in plantations and garden. The metallic green coloured adults can chomp on almost the entire foliage as their appetite spans across leaves and flowers of numerous types of plants. Larvae of this insect family are white grubs and they eat up the plants’ roots thereby creating dead grass patches. On emerging from the ground in late spring or early summer, the insects immediately begin feeding on all the plants. Because of such notorious activities, it is important that Japanese Beetles are controlled before the problem gets out of hand. [...]

Japanese Beetle Control: Understanding Their Life Cycle

Saturday, 24. September 2011 16:58

Japanese beetles are not much of a threat in their native country, Japan, since there is a natural predator. However, in many regions of the United States, without a natural predator, Japanese beetles have become the source of garden or orchard damage. Since they are a host on over 200 plants, Japanese beetles have become a significant threat to many people from commercial farmers and even to recreational “at-home” gardeners. However, what many people do not know is that the problem doesn’t lie with the Japanese beetle themselves, but actually the control methods that are used in efforts to get rid of them. Unfortunately, too many people are applying wrong amounts of insecticides or even the wrong insecticides altogether. Moreover, too little or too much of the insecticides are applied during the wrong seasons. By utilizing the right products and applying them correctly during the right time of year, you can potentially prevent a future Japanese beetle infestation in or around your garden.

Will the post beetles invade my walls or other wood in the room?

Saturday, 16. April 2011 13:27

Question : I have a shelf unit that has a really old looking door, probably from Indonesia.  A pest company fumigated inside a plastic tent, several times over a week.  A year later and the dust is back, indicating beetles are still there.  We clean and the dust returns.  The company no longer can operate a plastic tent unless they drive it to another location, hours away, cost prohibited.  (California is so strictly regulated.)

This insecticide works the best on unfinished wood. Sometimes for shelf units, the inside is unfinished and so you can take this insecticide and paint it on from the inside. It is called Boracare Termiticide. It is a termiticide, but it is also effective for wood boring beetles. Other than this though, I am not sure what else will work for your situation. I sincerely apologize that I can not help you any better than I have tried to. If you have any further questions or comments, please feel free to contact us again.

Is there any product I can use myself?  The wood is already dark and unvarnished, and has some paint colors, and looks really ancient.  It looks like it used to be a door.  I don’t really care if the product darkens the wood.  Would the heat treatment used for termites work?

Will the post beetles (the pest company told me that was the problem) invade my walls or other wood in the room?  Should I throw the piece away?  It only cost $350, but I really like it, it’s really unique.
