When and how often do I spray for Japanese Beetles?

Japanese Beetles are troublesome pests which love to eat roses, crapemyrtle, cherry and plums in particular.  Start spraying with Sevin around the end of May or when you first notice holes in the leaves of the plants.  Spraying may have to be done on a weekly or biweekly basis depending on the rainfall for about 6-8 weeks.  Do not use traps for these insects as the pheromones used in the traps will draw more of the beetles to your garden.
