It happened about a month ago when I first put the bags out. And today two of them have had the bottoms completely chewed out. What's bizarre is there wasn't any damage in the remaining time. Laura
Ok now just what are Japanese beetle bags?
I think Laura is referring to the bags that come with Japanese beetle traps. The trap consists of a plastic bag attached to a holder that contains an attractant to the beetles. For whatever reason the beetles fall into the bag, and in short order the bag fills up with beetles. (the one i have is called "bag-a-bug", by Spectracide.)
I accused our retriever of chewing on the bag, but it could have been raccoons. The decaying beetles certainly have a rank odor!
The other night, my wife and I heard a couple of coons fighting in the yard. The next morning the J.Beetle bag was ripped open! Too bad they don't eat the live ones with such enthusiasm!!!
