    Jap Beetles have returned to my vineyard. Be on the lookout in yours.

    I have seen a couple but not many.  I hear people saying it’s the worst year ever.  I would say the opposite.  I check daily and am prepared for war.

    Seeing a moderate amount of beetles here. Not as bad as a couple years ago, but significant, maybe a half dozen per vine. 

    After having lost a lot to birds and bees last year (and dealing with the beetles) I've decided to throw on some fine mesh coverings (image attached.) Sprayed Sevin to kill what's there now and put them on this morning. We'll see if I closed it tight enough...

    Worst I’ve seen in a couple years.
