We've only seen three. I'm sure that won't last though. I was kind of hoping that perhaps they were spent, after last year's bumper crop of bugs. The Asian ladybugs weren't too bad here this spring either.
From what I have read, those three beetles were probably the scouts. Go get 'em!!
Put them in your dishwater and let it set uncovered where you find them. When the others show up, they might decide your garden is not the best place to stay. Dang, I wish I could have seen the scouts at my house.
We've got lots of them. Disgusting things like the tree right over the deck. There's beetle poop everywhere, so many beetles that you can walk outside and hear the tick tick of the poop dropping! I hate the things, BLEH.

When i went to the gathering, i was shocked to find these bugs that LOOK like sweet lady bugs, are really these vile Japanese Beetles! I don't think I have ever seen them here, in fact, not sure i have even seen a lady bug yet this year.
“Transformation is not a future event. It is a present activity…That is why you must bring everything that you have to give in every moment…And it doesn’t have to be perfect, it’s not about perfect, it’s about effort. When you bring that effort every single day, that’s where transformation happens, that’s how change occurs.”
