Japanese Beetles

Asked July 8, 2020, 3:31 PM EDT

I sprayed Japanese Beetle killer on my plants and the beetles keep coming back. Do I just keep spraying the plants everyday? I also looked on the bottle to see if I can eat the vegetables? It says nothing about this.

Hello -

The product is probably killing the beetles but more keep coming to the plant. You need to follow the direction on how long you need to wait between applications. If the label does not list vegetables then you cannot use it on vegetables. You would need to contact the manufacture to determine if the produce is safe to eat.
