Japanese beetles

Asked August 9, 2018, 1:05 PM EDT

I have a waste area in my yard, is it prudent to put a beetle trap there so it will be away from the rest of my garden ?

Research has shown that Japanese Beetle traps do more harm than good. Indeed, they attract beetles that would eggs in your turf. Don't use them.

Good luck!!
