Jbeetle and milky spore -- again

Post by bree.. » Tue, 22 Jun 1999 04:00:00



Someone asked about Milky Spore works.  I think it is supposed
to slowly spread out in the soil over 3 years [lasting up to 10 years]
and kill the Jbeetle grubs.  

It is expensive [$30], but we have such a Jbeetle problem that I
thought we should try it.  Our neighbor [with over 40 roses] has done
it to her property also.  In a neighborhood you others to do it too.

Last year I discontinued the Jbeetle traps [I used those for about 5
years] and tried Neem.  I have a cherry tree that Jbeetles love [as
well as my Kerria bush & the roses] & I sprayed  with Neem daily.
I don't think it did enough.  Hopefully the Milky Spore will work.

I still expect Jbeetles this year -- maybe less of them though.  But
the warm winter in PA won't be helpful, I'm afraid. I'm just going to
dunk the things into soapy water -- after all, I cleaned aphids off
the roses 3 times a day at their height!

Good luck to all in the fight!

That was me. $30 for a supply that covers how much land? And, someone else
here posted that all the traps do is attract Japanese Beetles to one's
property. Did you find that to be true?

The best use of the traps is to put them in a yard taht is not near yours and
hope all of your JBs go there!
