Here they come.....!

Spotted a few Japanese beetles yesterday buzzing around.

Time to ready the tupperware bowl of soapy water and introduce them to the fine art of swimming...lol

Got any tips that work for you?

Thanks very much Rainbow.
I'm going to invest in some neem oil for the flowers & milky spore for the lawn; I've tilled up a bed and put some plants in and discovered grubs. I'm hoping milky spore will be a preventative measure also.

Thank you for posting the links as well, good information there!
