Help! I believe japanese beetles have invaded my rose bush. I lookes it up online and thats the best description. I put some chemical granules in the soil b/c thats all I had, I belive its Ortho rose care. Any recomendations from those battle tested. I know some beetles spread and I'm just getting started in the garden business!!!!

One to really watch out for is Black Vine Weevil. Especially if you have pots in your garden.

Just do a search on Google for them. My entire area is infested with them and they will kill pretty much anything in planters or pots, and greenhouses and poly tunnels.

Soory, almost forgot.

Nice and organice way to deal with them is the same as with black vine weevil, Nematode worms.

You should be able to get them at a really good garden center.
