Japanese Beetles vs. Roses

This video shows what you can do to win this battle for the roses. NHGC Editor Kathy Childers trapped one Japanese Beetle in her hair, but there are better ways to rid your roses of this pest than hire Childers. The Minnesota Landscape Arboretum recommends a bit of tolerance and then knocking the beetles off the roses and into a soapy solution. Watch the video for other recommendations.
