Japanese beetles are everywhere this time of year. and knock the insects off their perches and into a wide-mouthed jar of soapy water. That will gum them up and prevent them from f lying away. It is important to remember that if you do apply an insecticide or fungicide to plants during the summer, it is usually a good idea to water your plants several hours before spraying them, especially during dry weather. Drought stressed plants have less water in their tissues. As a result, chemicals that enter the leaves will be more concentrated and may burn the leaves. The best time to spray is in the early morning when the temperatures are lower. When temperatures go above 85째 you run the risk of burning the plants with pesticide sprays. Many times it is not the pesticide itself but the carrier, which is usually solvent or oil based, that does the damage.
