Comments on: Japanese Beetles Eat Peaches http://www.turkeycreeklane.com/?p=58 Rural life, recipes, animals & gardening Thu, 13 Apr 2017 12:38:20 +0000 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.5.6 By: jolynna http://www.turkeycreeklane.com/?p=58#comment-102 Thu, 26 Jul 2007 15:54:20 +0000 http://www.turkeycreeklane.com/?p=58#comment-102 We had pits laying all over the ground after the beetles got out peaches.

We were checking our peaches daily and didn’t see the beetles until our peaches got ripe. Did you see beetles?

We have deer and as far as I know they haven’t bothered our peaches.

Japanese beetles ruined every ripe peach before we ever saw the beetles. But, fortunately, there were still a lot of peaches on our tree that weren’t quite ripe at that time and that the beetles weren’t eating.

We didn’t want to take any chances and picked our remaining peaches as they were so that the beetles wouldn’t get them too.

Purdue University recommends pesticides every other day to prevent damage from beetles. My husband has used traps before for beetles getting his grapes. He said they didn’t save his grapes.

All my peaches were reduced to pits lying on the ground with one peach half eaten.
Soooo sad !
What do you think it was?

So what can be done about the creature that attacked my peaches and Japanese beetles?

I hate these beetles! We have them here too (although not as bad this year as they have been in previous years), I usually see them on my rose of sharon bushes, eating the flowers. Gardens Alive may have an organic solution. I’ve heard of some sort of bag traps you could use, but I’m not sure how effective that would be when there are so many of them. I’m glad you are able to get at least some of the peaches.

This is the first year we have had fruit since I married my husband 3 years ago. We had a freeze one year. Last year we had a windstorm that blew all of the peaches off when they were marble sized.

Hi Barngoddess,

I haven’t actually been blogging long, but I started visiting your site last winter for more information and your opinion about missing children.

I am glad your waterbut problem is over. The awful beetles are killing my organic gardening enthusiasm. Nothing seems to work.

I had a smilar experience except it didnt involve Japanese Beetles, it involved waterbugs in my pool….glad THATS over.
