I also found my first Japanese beetle on the eggplants yesterday morning (then a gross worm eating my shallots and leeks last night). I squished the bugger. The Japanese beetles will eat anything green.

I am going to keep squishing them and maybe get some traps.

(1) Fleabeetles are turning mine into lace.
(2) I just discovered 2 more eggplant starts in my dappled shade nursery corner. :o
These look well with no fleabeetle damage -- go figure. :roll:
(3) Overnight temp dipped to 54ºF this morning. :shock:

After reading the previous posts I ran outside to check up on my "tenders" Still there and no bugs. :shock: I didn't realize how much work these plants need. :lol:
Learning as I go and surprising myself when it all comes together......

If a disease doesn't kill them and a bug doesn't eat them there may be something left for you.
