Cascade Hop plants

Asked October 19, 2019, 9:28 AM EDT

Something has eaten the leaves of my hop plants. I have tried slug poison and Seven spray with no results. Any suggestions for next year?

Hi there,
It could be japanese beetles or rose chafers.

Check out the MSU Hop Guide for control options. It is updated every year so make sure you use the latest version and follow the labels.
