Things I hate – Japanese Beetles

Filed under: Bugs — Tags: , , — Miriam @ 9:24 pm

My mom asked me the other day if I ever write negative things in this blog. I generally try to keep this blog pretty positive. I like to write posts that remind me that my life is full of adventures.  But today I will make an exception. I will write about something I hate: Japanese Beetles.

Japanese Beetles
I hate Japanese Beetles. I hate how they skeletonize the plants they eat. I hate finding their grubs when I dig in the garden. I hate controlling them by hand picking them off.

Japanese Beetles
I’m actually a little happy that I gave up on the garden this year because of the drainage issues. Otherwise I think I would be spending every evening trying to kill off some of the population.

Japanese Beetles
These annoying bugs are just one more reason why I need to get some chickens and relatively soon. I guess Chickens love to eat them.



  1. Gross. I hope your chickens are able to get rid of them!

  2. I hear ya! I HATE them, too! Wish I had $1 for everyone I’ve picked off my morning glories this year alone!
