Japanese beetles and roses....

yoyobon_gwJuly 6, 2012

I just discovered quite by accident something which seems to be keeping the beetles off my roses.

In order to deter deer from munching on them, I have draped lightest weight deer netting over the roses.

It works.

I have also noticed that the beetles don't eat at the roses with the netting !

If you get the lightest weight deer netting it can barely be seen so you get to enjoy your rose blooms and protect them from deer and , as it turns out, beetles !

Or....does everyone else know this already and I'm just a late-comer !?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Yellow and white roses seem to be favourite of J.B.'s. Thank you for your idea. I will try it.
