Question: Should I use Japanese beetle traps?

When you first spy the beetles munching on your roses or raspberry plants, putting out a trap might seem like a good idea. However, some experts and researchers say these devices arent necessarily the best way to keep Japanese beetles at bay. In fact, a trap could even make your pest problem worse.

Are Japanese beetle traps worth it?

Japanese beetle traps release both a sex pheromone and a floral scent, are very effective in attracting adult beetles. The problem is, the traps attract about four times as many beetles as would normally be in your yard, and only 50% to 75% of them will actually end up in the bag.
