We have had numerous reports of heavy infestation of Japanese beetles this season. Japanese beetles have been active above ground feeding on the foliage of grass, plants, and ornamental garden plants such as vines. Adult Japanese beetles begin laying eggs in the ground typically during the month of July. The most effective way to control the Japanese beetle is to put down a granular application for grub control during the months of August or September. Parkway Lawn Service will be applying this insecticide to a number of our customers’ gardens this season. Please call if you have concerns or need help diagnosing whether tests are needed.
