I have never seen anything so cruel. As a new SFG, I just got my boxes ready six weeks ago. Everything seemed to be doing well after planting. Then terror struck.
I'm gone one week and millions of aphids were in the snow peas. Got rid of them with insecticidal soap. Pulled up the peas and behold, every cup of soil must have 20 beetle larve. Checked the other boxes and they are full also. What to do? pale

you can use milky spore. It is a bacterium used as an organic control for grubs. Japanese beetles deposit babies into your lawn. You spread the milky spore (bacillus popillae). Grubs ingest it. Spores germinate inside the grub and multiply. The grub dies, and more spores go into your soil.

My boxes are full of Japanese Beetle Larve Empty Milky Spore and Beneficial Nemotodes

I know about this but it may take too long to show results. Beneficial nemotodes are faster acting but getting them cost lots of $$. Looking for a "fast kill" without rendering my soil useless for safe eating when I replant. Thanks for the reply. You can't sleep either, huh?

If you are looking for something cheaper you can try neem based products. Safer makes one called Grub Killer. Bonide make one called Grub Beater.

Have you used these on Japanese beetle larvae? I was reading the label online Grub Killer and it said it repelled these larvae but did not say it killed them. I live in an area where I will have to drive 2hrs to a garden supply, but I do shop on line. There are Lowes & Home Depots around. Thanks

BT works on catapillers, does it work on grubs. In mean time, pick as many as you can out by hand. I had them in my flower pots once and it was not fun replanting that spring. Big fat white grubs. ugggg

No. I have not, but I have had some folks tell me that they worked pretty well on some grubs they had. I don't know if they were specifically the Japanese Beetles or not.
