Oriental beetle trap
I have a lot oriental beetles infested in garden beds, as well as outdoor potted plants. Well, yesterday when I planted the flowering almond plant in ground because it was doing not so well. I found more than ten grubs in 12" pot. That solved the problem that why my potted plants look sick, so do the young shrubs I planted this spring.
Last year, we had so many oriental beetles in the above ground pool that my kids didn't want to get close to it. This spring I used lawn pesticide, it helped. Should use lawn pesticide in garden beds and pots? They seem coming from my neighour's lawn. He doesn't use any control. I'm not a fan of pesticide, trap seems an option. However, some people think that traps are invitation for more pest, what do you think?
