Japanese Beetles on the Horizon

As we move into summer it is time to be on the lookout for Japanese beetles.  They are already being reported by Indiana Nursery Inspectors in Southern Indiana.  Continued warm weather and precipitation should bring them out throughout the rest of the state over the next few weeks.  See our bulletin Japanese Beetles in the Urban Landscape for tips on controlling them without killing pollinators.
