Everything except Japanese Beetles.
The bane of my existence.
Yes, they may be pretty in an iridescent art nouveau kinda way. With their shiny blue green carapace and cute antennae. They seem innocent enough. But wait till they get hungry and attack your plants (in my case grapes and plum trees) in numbers that are hard to imagine.
|Feeding on my grapes|
|After a day of gorging|
|Waiting in the buffet line|
But I have found something that is safe for the environment and immediate demise of those nasty beetles. CHICKENS. My chickens love them so much that they run and wait under the grapes.
Shake a fully loaded branch or vine and open your mouth. Down the hatch.
Those beetles don't stand a chance.
