Not so Great
I had big hopes for this product. But I don't see a reduction in the number of Japanese Beetles mating and feasting on my grape leaves. Really wish it had worked.
seems to work
This product seemed to work, but I'm not sure if the decrease was due to the natural cycle of the Japanese beetles. Either way, the beetles are gone so I'll definitely use this in the future!
My beans were overrun with Japanese Beetles. I have never seen an infestation like this one. I ordered this product, mixed it up and sprayed in the morning. By mid afternoon, not a beetle in site. It has been about a month since I first sprayed,and I have only seen one Japanese Beetle since. Unbelievable! I will always have this on hand!
Not enough ...
My first year with roses I'm heavily into BeetleJus and Pyola at recommended concentrations and rates of application and still the beetle pressure is beyond what these products can do. So sad to see each new bud emerge to be devoured as if beetle candy. Frankly I am not willing/ able to supply the $70 bug shaker device for each rigid branch of each rose (let alone the cherry tree or any of the hydrangeas). I'd need about 20 of those devices and at that rate--$1,400--I surrender, you know? But, thinking of another mechanical approach, I crafted net snoods to protect buds on the roses and so far, at a material cost of about $5, I have enough made to shift around the shrubs as new bud/bloom clusters emerge. Another financially reasonable alternative would be creating a whole shrub hood from lightest weight barrier fabric, secure around stems/trunks.
This is truly an amazing product. Japanese Beetles were devastating my beans. Every day I would pick at least 20-30 from the plants.Wanting to believe the claims on the website, I ordered this product. A little more money than I wanted to spend, but I was getting desperate. I mixed it up, sprayed it on the pole beans in the morning, and by mid afternoon- not a single beetle!!!! Not trusting what I was seeing, I figured I would wait until the next morning to pass judgement on the mixture. The next day, not a single Japanese Beetle in the garden. I will have this on hand every year for the rest of my life:-) Fantastic stuff!
