Help with a list of plants to avoid due to japanese beetles
I only saw my first J. beetle a few years ago. Now they cover the fields of our farm.
My garden blooms/foliage are getting eaten alive.
My canna have to be sprayed daily as I will have as many as 30 bugs on ea stalk with the hand picking method. (That's per day!) I'm seriously thinking about eliminating the plants they find most tasty here. Not as an effort to decrease the bugs numbers- just to avoid a nasty looking garden.
That includes canna,
porcelain berry vine ( ampelopsis)
Please help add the the list of plants so I don't bother purchasing them and then tossing them after they are tossed-salad for these nasty orgie oriented bugs.
