GRO Big Red Gardening Show: Episode 4 Japanese Beetle

On today’s podcast, Scott and Jonathan talk about the pesky Japanese beetle! This voracious pest attacks over 300 different species of plants as an adult and is a lawn pest as a white grub larva. As adults they skeletonize leaves and can eat fruits and flowers as well. In the show you will find information on preferred hosts and how to deal with these hungry, hungry beetles!
