Japanese Beetles
A notorious pest to ones garden is the Japanese beetle. The green metallic insects are about 3/8” long. The beetle feed on the leaves of many landscape plants such as roses. If you do not notice the beetle itself you can’t miss the skeletonized leaves it creates. The best natural method of removing the beetle is to keep a jar of soapy water and knock the beetles off the plant into the jar. A more efficient solution would be to spray the beetles with pyrethrin based insecticides at first signs of damage.
