Hi. Where I live, the CT shoreline, Japanese beetles are a perennial problem. Even though their "busy" time is supposed to be late afternoon, I have always encountered them at night, presumably attracted by lights. Also, I've seen very few hanging out on my plants during the day. My yard is nearly 1/3 acre, and I have plants just about everywhere. Following the directions on the box precisely, I have placed beetle bags in three separate locations- downwind, the recommended distance from my plants etc. Not a single beetle was lured into any of the "Bag-a-Bugs." I have tried the traps in various spots around my yard and no beetles bit. Based on what I have read here and on the experience of people I know in my area, these bags fill in up no time with countless beetles. I know beetles are around b/c they hang out at night under the lights on my deck. So I assume that beetles are at least 1 of the pests munching on my leaves. Are the beetles in my yard exceptionally intelligent or am i doing something wrong? Any thoughts would be appreciated.
