Japanese Beetles

Post by Adam_M » July 28th, 2022, 2:28 pm

Hi,
I've got a couple cherry trees and a few hardy hibiscus bushes that Japanese beetles are really doing a number on. I've sprayed with neem oil every few weeks, but the beetles don't really seem to care. Any other suggestions?

If you’re committed to organic solutions, your options are pretty limited.

But any of the box stores will have non-organic solutions.

oh I'm in no way committed to organic - I've just read that neem oil was the answer. To a big box store I go...
