    The Japanese Beatle is on the watch list at ISU. This is becoming a major problem with crops.

    Just let them pass, you can spray Sevin on your tree if you want. They shouldn't be around much longer, and if your tree is mature enough it wont kill your tree.

    Miss Hepburn is a beauty to behold. I would have a hat like that if I could pull it off.

    Yeah its a Japanese beetle. Awful little bastards. You can either spray your tree to try and kill them or catch them manually and put them in a bucket of soapy water for the guaranteed kill.

    They were ALL over a course I played last week. I think they were in a mating frenzy. There were balls of them on the fairways and greens.

    I do not know a lot about this insect. But I have been reading that they are also that their larve are big lawn eaters as well. Get a handle on them now. I am having some major grub problems and from what I'm finding on the internet, these guys are the contributors.

    On a side note. Why does all this bad **** come from Asia? How is any living thing still left there?

    No, they are not lawn eaters.
