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.]]>
So what can be done about the creature that attacked my peaches and Japanese beetles?]]>
Gah, the missing children in our country is at an all time high. I feel a rant coming on so Ill save it for a long windy post over at the Res….]]>
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.
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.]]>
