QUESTION:

I have Beetles that eat my roses every year and NOTHING I have tried has worked. Please Help me get rid of these pests.
Thank You

ANSWER:

Hi Darla,
These are actually Japanese beetles that love to eat the rose leaves.
Japanese beetles eat the foilage of many ornamental plants, and roses are a favorite.

They often skeletonize leaves, but they also do damage to buds and flowers.
Japanese beetles can be treated in their larval stage ( a white grub that damage lawns) or as adults.
There are several biological controls such as bacterium and beneficial nematodes (tiny worm-like soil dwellers).
You can also handpick adult beetles and drop them in a bucket of soapy water to kill them.
Here is my page about Japanese beetle control.
Several other beetles infest roses, but they are red, green-spotted, or brownish. Treatment is the same as for Japanese beetles.
