Re: Japanese beetles

        The state ag dept here in colordo has also been setting traps for a
number of years and have succeeded in catching around 300 a year. The traps
typically have been set at wholesale nurseries who receive plants from the
Midwest where the beasts are prevalent. Colorado I believe currently
requires a certificate stating that the trees from the Midwest are Jap
BEetle Free.
        One of the guys from the Ag dept stated that "The Japanese Beetle
will never be a problem in Colorado because the climate is too dry. I
laughed in his face and told him that he was crazy. Insects adapt, they will
survive some day. Having grown up outside Gary, In. I grew up with them and
