What's Killing My Kale? Episode 12 - Japanese Beetle

How Much Do We Really Know About Japanese Beetles?

Everyone is talking about Japanese beetles this season, but how much do we actually know about how to control them?

In this episode, Extension Educator Jeff Hahn and Entomology graduate student Dominique Ebbenga help me bust some myths about Japanese beetle control. We break down the ins and outs of this invasive pest, and they reveal some fascinating facts about what makes them such a
tough foe for fruits and vegetables in Minnesota.
