Can I use Mikly spore on the soil around my apple trees? I want to get rid of the larva from the Japanese beetle. Thanks

Hello,

Milky spore will kill a few Japanese beetles but Japanese beetles are good flyers and will come into your yard from neighboring yards. Here is our factsheet on this pest: http://extension.colostate.edu/docs/pubs/insect/05601.pdf
