Just a brief note about the use of pesticides for Japanese beetles. These pesticides, such as Sevin which I recommended, are deadly to bees and butterflies etc. as well as the pesky beetles. Ed Lentz, Seneca County Extension Educator, suggests spraying in the morning and evening when the bees are less active and avoiding the middle of the day. I still have not sprayed, although the puffer is loaded and ready, but I am picking off about 50 beetles a day by hand from the raspberries and roses, and strangely enough they love my Sacred Lily of India which is at its leafy umbrella-like stage.
