    Trouble for Sarrs??

    I've got a bunch of sarrs coming in tomorrow, and I have these beetles just feet away from my grow table eating the hell out of my brambles. I was wondering if these are going to be a problem for my sarrs?

    I've had similar, and they will eat your sarrs! I would go ahead and spray them with something, idk what, but something that will kill them.

    Those are japanese beetles. I've had them before, they left a few holes in my sarr pitchers, but nothing severe.

    Spray the sarrs, or the beetles? I hope you don't mean the beetles.. there's 1000's of them. And my property has brambles on every side, so we're surrounded by beetles right now. They do make trap bags especially for these things though. So maybe I can score some of those.

    That's what my father called them. I wasn't sure if that was the "Technical Term". lol So instead of sounding stupid I just left that part out.

    I would spray the Beetles, and wipe the ones out in the area your sarrs will be near. If you don't, they will eat your sarrs up most likely. I had that happen to me once, they ate holes in the pitches and made the plants look terrible. Took care of that problem.

    I'll probably do that and get a Pheromone Trap Bag for them tomorrow. We get these things every year.. it sucks.

    Pheromone bags work wonders but it only by attracting them. You'll end up killing tons of them AND attracting more. Sounds like you're stuck between a rock and a hard place : /

    I wouldn't recommend the pheromone traps, they end up attracting more beetles than they kill
