Oriental Beetles?

Oriental beetle / asian beetle

How do you guys deal with these guys? I sprayed with capt. Jacks and hung beetle traps but they still keep coming

If you’re growing outside, flying pests will keep coming. A good IPM schedule/routine will help them not munch on your girls too much, but the flyers normally go from here to there. Other smaller bugs and creepy crawlies are more of a concern since they get in all the buds and can go unseen for a long time.


Japanese Beetle. You can get a bucket of soapy water and just brush them off the plants into the soap. You could also spray insecticidal soap but it has to go directly on the beetles. You can also try beneficial grubs and/or nematodes. Bonide makes a product called Japanese Beetle Killer
