Japanese Beetle – Organic Control

Q: Is there any organic method to keep Japanese beetles off my plants?

A: Insecticidal soap or products containing pyrethrin could be the answer for you. You’ll have to hit the insect directly with the spray – that can be hard on rose blooms. Neem oil is a product registered for Japanese beetle feeding repellency but research in Ohio has not shown it to be very effective.
