    Thanx Pam D! My neighbor told me they were, so I purchased something the other day to kill them that was specifically for Japanese beetles! Sigh....

    Harold, the cold weather did nothing to kill them off in our area. Last year we had lots as well, and our winter in the Jersey area was pretty cold as we had snow for several months on the ground when normally it snows and within a week its gone. Not

    It sounds to me like Kudzu (spelling) bugs. We had them here in Nashville during the summer. They were all over some of our plants and tress. The concerning thing is that I believe they find the nearest wall, structure, crack to hibernate or live

    Univ of Ga is looking at an Asian Wasp that likes to eat the bugs [they don't harm humans] but studies are still a couple of years away.

    Actually the wasps will be introduced next year but it will take several years for them to help. We will still have them. Can't completely eliminate them.

    The wasps will not harm humans. They are only attracted to the eggs of the "kudzu" beetles
