Japanese Beetle News website now available
The current Japanese beetle invasion raises questions for many people. How long will they be here? Will my plants die? What can I do to stop it?
To help answer these questions and more, University of Illinois Extension Educators Rhonda Ferree and Matt Montgomery developed a new website. The website is set up as a blog so that they can post the most current information at a moment's notice. The blog format also includes a comment section for readers with additional questions.
Rhonda and Matt split blogs into several categories: homeowner news, agricultural producer news, and media news. You'll find factsheets, Q&A (question & answer) sheets, look-alikes information, links, and more.
If you aren't fighting this beetle yet, just wait. Go to Japanese Beetle News to find all the information you need for your beetle battle.
