I live in central Illinois and japanese beetles are a massive problem. Almost all my neighborhood has dead grass patches from the larvae....

I was going to plant some first year cascade, centennial, and a magnum rhizome. Is there anything else to stop them from attacking that won't affect my plant ?


Perhaps I should put a bunch of traps on the opposite side of the yard from my plants

I live in aurora il and I think the solution is do everything you can. Grub control. Traps. Soap spray. I've had a lot of luck with a pan if old beer. They are drawn to the sweetness and drown in the beer.
