Got them today and stapled them to the fence out by the garden. Thanx a bunch. I'm still a little concerned about the japanese beetles this year, as I understand it takes a fall application of the milky spore to have good results on the grubs.

I have lose five trees in my yard from those beetles. Not to mention my garden and other stuff. This year Knock on wood, it hasn't been so bad. I spray and spray. They just keep coming.

George, they love to put thei egg cases in amongst berry bushes, be careful when you hack down your canes for the fall,mike

George, leave the old canes to the spring time, then cut em off and move the dead canes to a shrub and let em hatch out in it,mike

George, after the female deposits the egg cases, they die soon afterwards also, check fences and deep shrubs, they love to put the egg cases on them also.mike
