SEVERE DAMAGE: Plants & Turf - Japanese Beetles


One of the foremost danger to plants are pests and among those, one such pest is a great danger to all plants: Japanese beetles.

Signs of Japanese Beetles Damage

These beetles are a nuisance far and wide. They attack crops in groups, causing monumental damage. What makes them especially problematic is their in-discrimination towards crops; they feed on a variety of plants with Roses being their favorite among the vast menu any lawn has to provide.

Brown patches in grass

If you have noticed brown patches in your grass, these beetles are the culprits. During the winter, these insects remain underground, growing in the soil. One might think they only cause damage in the summer, but that is not the case. While in the soil, these grubs feed on the roots of grass, making it weak, which leads to its ugly brown color.

Skeletonized leaves

Another common sign is the half eaten leaves and flowers, or worse, skeletonized leaves. As these beetles feed in groups, they are able to consume a leave or a flower fairly quickly. This is a clear sign that your lawn is infected with these pests.

How to recognize Japanese Beetles?

These beetles, on average, are half an inch long. They have copper-coloured backs with tan wings, blue-green metallic eyes, and white hair lining each side of its abdomen.

Why is it important to take action against them?

These beetles spread like a deadly virus, they are transferred through soil, thus avoiding them is almost impossible. If they find their way onto a flower, they are sure to infect your entire plant space soon enough.
