  Japanese Beetles on sauromatum
From: "Alex Bilgri" a_bilgri at hotmail.com> on 2002.07.03 at 04:07:13(9061)
Hi all,

Today I noticed A single japanese beetle on my Sauromatum venosum. The
single beetle almost destroyed an entire leaflet. Can this plant take normal
chemical pestisides? Are there any natural pestisides that will work for
japanese beetles?

Check http://www.planetnatural.com

They sell three items that may be of interest:

1. Japanese Beetle Trap.

2. Milky Spore (Bacillus popilliae) --- perhaps your best bet!

3. "Spikes of Death" -- actually lawn aerator sandals that their
researchers claim kill 56% of Japanese beetle grubs by walking over plots of
lawn 3 to 5 times.

What ever works!

Why not use a machete on the obscenity & let the poor little beetle run back
to Mum?

Milky Spore Disease is natural and it will rid you of them forever.
The down side is you may have to do the neighbor's property too.

Where do I get this milky spore? I looked for it at our Fleet Farm and they
didn't have it.
