I admit it. Take me to jail. I found Sevin in the bar when we took it down and I used it today on the rose bushes. I've been knocking those stupid things off at least twice a day and their friends just take their place. Help.
There was a japanese beetle on the squash this morning. Never had that before and I'm sure it's not a good sign. Like you say spuds, some years the beetles are bad then some not so much. This year is gonna be bad. I knock them off and step on them but others just fly right in. Even with the Sevin the bushes were covered this morning and it didn't even rain last night.
We've been hand picking the nasty little buggers non stop. Toss 'em in a bucket of soapy water and no mo bug! I've heard is you put a white bucket out with water & a bit of dish soap in it ( to break the waters surface tension) they'll fly them-icky-selves right into it for you.

Turns out they didn't stay on the squash. I have had a few on the roses but I either squash them or knocked them off and step on them. Some years they're terrible but this year not so bad. Would be nice if they'd commit suicide.
OK anyone have any luck with these nasty sonsa (*%$## I have them on EVERYTHING roses raspberries apple trees crab apple trees lily's etc you get the point .. gonna find a white pail and see if that works I will let you all know tomorrow or sometime soon ... I really don't wanna use any poisons .. never have liked them and I have to many critters eating all those raspberries HOPEFULLY next season I will get a few for myself agree
here is what we do, use a tub about half full of water. Pour diesel on the water just enough to cover the water. Hang a light over the tub close to the water. turn the light on at night. come morning just remove dead bugs. CF
