The Japanese Beetles Invading Our Homes and Gardens are Over!

Reading time: 4 minutes

If there is one thing for which exterminators have little solution and which persists year after year invading our spaces, it is Japanese beetles. They arrive by the thousands during the high season and settle everywhere, destroying our gardens and harming our quality of outdoor life.

No matter how much you try all kinds of methods and products, each year they will come back in greater numbers than the last. There are some “old grandmother's tricks” that can sometimes help mitigate the presence of Japanese beetles, but today I'm here to tell you about a product that actually works and is proven to work.

Let's talk science for a minute:

What is a Japanese beetle?

A Japanese beetle is a small beetle, approximately 10 to 13 mm in length, with a golden-green metallic body and copper-colored wing covers. This insect is polyphagous, meaning it feeds on a wide variety of plants, which intensifies its impact on agriculture and gardens. The adults feed on the leaves, flowers and fruits of more than 300 plant species, while the larvae, living underground, attack the roots, which can weaken or even kill the host plants.

Why are there so many of them in Quebec during the high season?

Japanese beetles are distinguished by their ability to adapt to various environments, which explains their increasing numbers in Quebec. Originally from Japan, this insect was introduced to North America in the early 20th century without its natural predators, which facilitated its rapid spread. Additionally, Quebec's climate, with its hot, humid summers, provides ideal conditions for Japanese beetles to reproduce and arrive in large numbers during the hot summer season.

What are the consequences that a Japanese beetle can cause?

The consequences of their presence in Quebec are numerous. Agriculturally, Japanese beetles can cause significant damage to crops, including fruits, vegetables and ornamentals, reducing yields and increasing production costs. In gardens and green spaces, the ferocious feeding of adults leaves behind devoured leaves and destroyed flowers, compromising the beauty and health of landscapes. In addition, larvae that feed on lawn roots can cause considerable damage by making lawns uneven and encouraging the development of weeds.

The solution!

Unfortunately, there are few products that can match the feat of being able to control Japanese beetles... except for one product that could well and truly save your summer! I'm talking about Japanese beetle trap here .

Although this product may seem at first glance very banal and similar to what we already see, you should not rely only on the cover of the book! The reusable Japanese beetle and beetle rescue trap is exceptional and here's why:

Firstly, it captures with astonishing efficiency a multitude of Japanese beetles at once thanks to its very powerful attractant specially designed for this type of parasite. In addition, this trap is natural and does not require harmful chemicals to function unlike certain toxic products which risk destroying ecosystems. Its operation is simple. Simply follow the instructions to activate the trap, place the trap in the places you want to protect and that's it. It's that simple. And that's not all! It is a reusable trap which allows you to use it several times! When it is full of Japanese beetles, all you have to do is empty it and put it back in place.

Traps Rescue! Japanese beetles

How is the trap so effective?

Well the trap uses a scientifically designed method to control the release of natural floral and sexual attractants into the air to attract male and female beetles to the trap. The convenient plastic cone design saves the user from having to handle the actual attractants and allows the pheromones to be dispersed in all directions. All this means that the catching capacity of this trap is 4 times greater than that of the competition.

Beetle Trap Rescue!

In short, if you want to have a great summer without worrying about being constantly bothered by Japanese beetles and the damage they cause to your plants and gardens, I strongly advise you to use the Japanese beetle trap . It's not perfect, but it will succeed in repelling beetles from your spaces so you can fully enjoy your home. On this note, I am not worried that this affordable solution to avoid the use of potentially dangerous pesticides will soon be known to everyone!
