Here in Illinois the Japanese Beetles are unbelievable. We use pheremone traps that we empty every day. Today DH emptied one then came back an hour later to a FULL trap. He just modified the trap with a plastic trash bag to hold many, many more beetles. My chickens love beetles, but can't possibly eat them in the quantities that we catch. I am curious how you deal with Japanese Beetles. The pheremone traps work well, but at this rate we'll need to empty our traps a dozen times a day! Oh, and i saw a post about freezing the beetles to feed to chickens as a cold treat. Interesting idea! I may try that.
