Are these "Japanese Beetles"?
« on: June 15, 2017, 01:19:35 AM »
Seems a rather generic term to me but whatever they are the certainly enjoy eating Salvia leaves. If they are Japanese beetles here is an interesting article on natural control. I must look out for the white eggs. Or perhaps this method of control only works in the states?
I have a small garden in Rome, Italy. Some open soil, some concrete, some paved. Temperatures in winter occasionally down to 0C. Summer temperatures up to 40C in the shade. There are never watering restrictions but, of course, there is little natural water for much of June, July and August.
