Japanese Beetle in late July, west KY
How about this Japanese Beetle ORGY in my sisters yard? GROSS!
One of three bags on my five-acre lot, filled in a single afternoon at height of beetle invasion.
They eat everything but themselves.
Spraying is useless.
On Astilbe blossom in late May. They also like my roses.
Even the weeds are not safe. Early June, west KY, USA
My most hated garden enemy!
They can hold on with one leg through any strength of wind (or poking). On a raspberry bush.

Accompanied by another bug (perhaps another pest: a gnat) .. (July 2007)
They like Trumpet Vine Flowers too!
Japanese Beetle destructively eat leaves in a very lace like pattern.
May they all die horrible and painful deaths. At least this time it was wild clover instead of my althea and hollyhocks.

this is what japanese beetles did to my cherry tree
Hundreds of these bugs were on my privet hedges.
My second one in five years; that's what I get for planting beetle food (roses) this month.
