    [​IMG]We planted two young fruit tress last weekend, apple and pear. Both have fruit growing.
    Went to check their progress after work and ended up removing a small army of Japanese Beetles.
    We don't use pesticides on our homestead so I was hoping someone can give me a safe alternative to chemicals.
    Thank you in advance,
