If your yard has random discolored patches, or leaves on your trees look like something attacked them with a scissors, chances are you can thank Japanese beetles.
In the past five years, this invasive pest has rampaged into Ozaukee County, SE Wisconsin and northern IL. Japanese beetles feed on more than three hundred plants. Rose bushes and grape vines are among their favorites.
Japanese beetles are about a half-inch in length. Their metallic-green bodies are partly covered by bronze-colored wings. They attack eat up trees and plants with abandon, leaving “skeletonized” leaves that resemble sewing lace. The bugs consume only the material between the veins.
Japanese beetles are the most widespread turf-grass pest in the U.S. - including Ozaukee County. Adults tunnel into grass to lay eggs. The hatched grubs in the lawn consume the roots of grasses and other plants. Brown tracks or large spots result.
If these visions sound familiar, you just want to know how to get rid of Japanese beetles. Grub control pesticide can be used on the larvae. Spraying is the only means of adult Japanese beetle control for your Ozaukee County home.
