I'm having an unusual problem, this year....my rebloomers are reblooming so early that it's coinciding with the Japanese beetles.....and the darn things eat like hogs !! Anyone have any suggestions for a "repellant", rather than a poison......the honey bees are visiting the blooms, as well. thanks
That's what I've been doing....picking them off, a couple times a day. They are usually "over" for the year, when rebloom starts, but they are "running late (thankfully there aren't as many as some years !), and the rebloom is starting early! I tried "misting" the blooms with "insecticidal soap".....which works well, for other bugs, later in the rebloom season........but all that seems to do is make the beetles cleaner !
