Frequently Asked Question About Japanese Beetles

What are Japanese beetles?

Japanese beetles are a type of invasive scarab beetle known for their destructive nature. Adult Japanese beetles grow up to 15 millimeters long and have distinctive hard-shelled bodies with copper-colored wings and a green thorax and head. Males of this species are smaller than females. Both adult Japanese beetles and their larvae cause significant damage to over 300 species of plants in North America without the proper Japanese beetle treatment.

Are Japanese beetles dangerous?

Japanese beetles don't bite humans or spread diseases and pathogens. However, they are incredibly destructive to plants and may irreparably damage several types of plant species on your property. 

The way you know that you have Japanese beetle damage to your plants is the way these pests "skeletonize" plants, meaning they eat away at the matter between leaf veins. They typically feed in groups and let off pheromones to attract other Japanese beetles, creating a serious problem as these beetles gather on your plants. 

Additionally, Japanese beetle grubs feed on the roots of grass and destroy your lawn, which makes it essential to remove every life stage of these pests from your Omaha property.

Why do I have a Japanese beetle problem?

Japanese beetles are attracted to roses, maple trees, and raspberry bushes, among many others. They will find a way to your property if you have plenty of the plants they love to eat within easy reach. These pests also use pheromones to attract other adult Japanese beetles. Once an infestation starts, it's difficult to get rid of.

Where will I find Japanese beetles?

Japanese beetles are most commonly found outdoors on plants, trees, or overgrown areas. They may be sighted around vegetable gardens, in piles of debris, or near fallen fruit as they scavenge things to eat to continue their life cycle.

How can I prevent Japanese beetles in the future?

The following natural remedies for Japanese beetles will help you keep these pests from entering your property and prevent future infestations from occurring:

  • Avoid planting light-colored flowers around outdoor areas, as Japanese beetles are commonly attracted to bright white and yellow flowers.

  • Choose plants for outdoor areas that Japanese beetles don't tend to like much, such as ash, magnolia, and oak trees.

  • Seal cracks around your property's foundation, windows, and doors, and fortify entryways to keep Japanese beetles out of your house using window screens, door screens, and weatherstripping.

  • Avoid DIY Japanese beetle traps, as these will only attract and trap a group of Japanese beetles that will give off pheromones that easily attract other pest invaders, making your problem worse.
