No clue sorry. I just know don't use the traps they sell. I thought there was something you could sprinkle on the ground that helped but :face-with-spiral-eyes:

Should I be ? am i releasing pheromones to attract more ?
they're torching black n dropping . leaf is wet or moist ,doesn't hurt leaves at all... :thinking-face:
@danieyella @Stang67 @sfin52 ?
I don't know about the torch effect, but I always heard the best method of clearing these beetles is to set up a trap on your neighbor's property; attract them all over there! ...unless, of course, you like your neighbors and don't want a war.

A friend I used to chat with years ago on another forum told me her husband would shoot walls trying to get a mouse.


With buckshot. :face-with-tears-of-joy:
