Devil Beetle Update!

koke(6bPA)July 9, 2005

Well,its been awhile since I saw any of those devasting Devil Beetles and I don't miss them at all.I had to use some Sevin on my Crape Myrtle.I baby that shrub and when I saw the Devil Beetles on it,I went nuts! Hubby had to spray my "baby"! Now,I have relaxed and soon my Crape will bloom with no apparent harm.How about the rest of you? Anybody still seeing those Devil Beetles?

I still have about 10 a day on my roses. However, after I treated them to Sevin on my Crape Myrtle, I have not seen any there.

I had a Sassafrass tree seedling growing. One morning at about 6:00 am I went outside and from afar it looked like it was splattered with mud. Up close I saw it was coated in mating beetles! Disgusting! I ripped it out and pitched it. There were holes all through it. Such a shame!
