Insecticides Are Not Always The Answer
Dear I'lant Doctor: Your advicc
for roses was right on target because
rose culture in our area requires
very special attention. I used to
have greater success with roses
when I lived in upstate New York
although diseases and beetles were
ongoing problems there also.
The main reason for this letter is
to express my disapproval of your
advicc regarding use of insecticides
to eliminate Japanese Beetles. My
practice is to knock these pests into
a small jar containing some mineral
oil. The jar lid should be popped on
immediately after capture because
these arc flying insects. This
method works very well. We should
avoid using insecticides whenever
there is a good alternative.
Answer: 1 agree completely and
thank you for your comments.
Insecticides have been the tradi
tional method of insect control and
arc still the most popular and effica
cious means to protect plants. On
the average, 1 expect that less than
45 minutes a week is spent working
on the flower garden. Insecticides
are a "quick fix" for insccl prob
lems hence their great popularity.
However, there arc numerous other
non-chemical methods that can be
utilized (and some that should not
be used) for the control of Japanese
The adult Japanese beetle feeds
on over 275 different plant species
and will often congregate on the
flowers, fruit or foliage of the plant.
The beetles spend about 10 months
of the year in the soil in the larval
form. "The root feeding larva is often
responsible for severe injury to
home lawns. The larva pupates in
early spring and emerges as adult in
the early summer to feed and lay
eggs. Japanese beetles arc often
most severe in new residential hous
ing developments because of abun
dance of host plants and few natural
Controlling the beetle is best ac
complishes through an integrated
pest management program. One of
die better natural control methods is
ihc use of milky spore disease (Bac
illus popilliae). Spores of milky
spore disease can be distributed on
your lawn in the early fall. A large
portion of the developing larva will
be killed thus reducing next sum
mers crop of bccdcs. In addition as
milky spore disease bccomcs estab
lished in your lawn, control as
achieved for years to come.
A parasitic nematode had been
developed that is reported to control
the beetle larva and many other soil
insects. The product is called Bio
Safe and is available from a Califor
nia company called Biosys.
Larkspur (Delphinium spp.) and
geranium (Pelargonium spp.) inter
planted with your roses may also
help control the beetle. It seems
these plants arc toxic to beetles eat
ing the foliage.

Many of Ihc wild plants around
your garden can increase the level
of beetle infestation. Removal of
bracken fern, elder, evening prim
rose. sassafras, poison ivy and all
wild grape plants from around your
garden will help control the pest.
Beetle traps arc controversial.
Many entomologists believe Japan
ese beetle traps actually increase the
population of beetle in the near
proximity of the trap.
Nccm oil is reported to deter
Japanese beetles from feeding.
The last resort should be insecti
cides. They are a vital and extreme
ly important control agent in the
war against noxious pests. A ratio

be achieved by using pest manage
ment practices and learning all you
can about the pests that eat up your
