Back in July, there were a lot of Japanese beetle sightings. They hatch out of the lawn and swarm around looking for foliage to eat. Once these critters start zipping around your landscape, they can completely defoliate a tree in two days or less with their voracious appetites. We can treat your trees, shrubs, bushes, and roses once you start seeing activity. You might also want to think about scheduling a lawn treatment to prevent the larvae from hatching.

Whatever you do, do not hang a pheremone trap from the tree. Instead of solving the problem, the trap will actually just invite more beetles to join the leafy buffet that is your landscape!
