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.
