When and if I do use Sevin I do it in the evening hours. I don't want to harm the little bees.



Very Happy

There isn't any liquid... there are two solid scent pads. And you keep the traps about 10 feet from your garden anyway.

Huh. I was thinking I could use the bag system and collect a ton of them and then feed them to the chickens, unless the substance in the bag was toxic.

A scent pad. I wonder if that would make the beetles toxic or not... I'll have to research that.

They don't even touch the pads... they fly around them, try to land and drop into the bag. The first bag I tied up and threw away must have weighed over a pound. Seriously. These things catch them like crazy! The bag is hour-glassed shaped... so they drop in but can't fly out. The bag has drain holes so when it rains they don't turn into beetle soup. You can remove the bag, dump the beetles (for the chickens) and then replace the same bag on the trap. Best of both worlds for you... I just don't have anything to feed mine to so I have to buy new bags.



This is what mine looks like... only my bags are clear, which I like so I know when to change it. I don't mind seeing the beetles.

Google it and you'll find directions for making homemade traps, too.

How exciting! Thank you! Very Happy I should've been doing this all along. Just wait until next year. Japanese beetles will be on the endangered species list...

That's an amazing trap.

Could it be hung from the trellis? Or would that be too close?

I've been told they are incorrigible at the garden.

it gives me great pleasure to roam the yard, a cup of water with a dash of dish soap in one hand, a "knocker" in the other (usually a plastic spoon or fork), knocking them into the soap and sending them on to their next life...same with those danged gypsy moth caterpillars.
