Destructive Japanese Beetles are now beginning to hatch at the end of June in and around Naperville. For those of you scheduled for these treatments your first application will occur after July 4th. We don’t want to start applications too early. Remember that your susceptible trees and shrubs will still sustain some damage even with treatment. Spraying against this insect will limit their damage but will not eliminate the damage altogether as they have to do some feeding to absorb enough insecticide to kill them.
If you are not scheduled for treatment keep an eye out especially on your Linden trees as that is their favorite target. They will also attack White Birch, River Birch, Purple Plums, Elms and certain Maples and Crab Apples plus several types of bushes. And call us for an estimate for treatment!
