Description

Safer® Brand Japanese Beetle Trap - 3 Traps

The Safer® Brand Japanese Beetle Trap uses a food and reproductive attractant to lure insects into the trap and disrupts the mating cycle. A controlled-release system maximizes the life of the attractant and protects the attractant from environmental degradation. Place this natural pest control trap at least 10 feet away from plantings to prevent defoliation.

Directions for Use:

Trap Assembly

  1. Slide vanes together at the slots to form a cross.
  2. Attach the twist tie by inserting about 4 inches through the holes in the top vane assembly as shown in the diagram below and twist to secure the trap.
  3. Attach one of the disposable collection bags to the vane assembly by gently sliding the holes in the bag over the cutout hooks on the lower end of the trap vanes.

Bait Placement

  1. Remove the bait pack from its protective packaging. Peel the protective cover (marked peel) from the Safer® Brand Japanese Beetle Trap bait pack.
  2. Peel the paper from the adhesive strip on the back of the reproductive/floral lure bait pack and attach the bait onto the trap vane. Do not attempt to peel apart the bait.
  3. For best results are obtained by attaching the bait pack to the lower third of the trap vane.

Trap Placement, Application Rate and Use:

  • Place traps as beetles emerge in mid-May to early June in Georgia and South Carolina
    • Early June to mid June in North Carolina and Tennessee
    • Mid-June to early July in Kentucky, Delaware, Washington DC, Virginia and West Virginia.
    • Early July to mid-July in Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania and New jersey
    • Mid-July in New York, Connecticut, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Vermont and Maine.
  • Place traps on the generally upwind side of vegetable gardens, flower gardens, ornamental shrub planting and other outside landscape planting attached by the beetles. Apply traps at the rate of one trap per 50 linear feet along two sides of plant perimeters. For example, if the site is 1 to 50 linear feet, place only one trap on each of the two sides. If the site is 51 to 100 linear feet, place two traps on each of the two sides, etc. Do not enclose the treated site with traps.
  • Hang traps from any suitable post or stand in sunny areas 3 to 5 feet above the ground.
  • Place traps at least 10 feet away from the planting as they may attract beetles to foliage if placed closer
  • Replace bags when full. If trap catches decline and beetles are still present, replace bait pack. Remove traps from site when beetles are no longer present.

A time saver: trapping vs. hand picking of J. Beetles By FamahFRKL

I have used these taps for 16 years here in rural Vermont. They indeed trap these beetles as advertised. I run 7 traps and change the bags at least 5 times during our 2 month beetle season. I've now idea how many of these are in a pound but they have a combined weight of at least 6 lbs. every weigh-in. All nearby dealers of these traps were out of them by mid-August as attests to their efficacy.

Effective, convenient By DJones

Product was very effective in reducing the damage from a beetle population explosion this year. One bag got so full in one week that the wire hanger broke! Since I couldn't find them in the store, ordering online was convenient. I will definitely order more again earlier next year to be ready!

Clearing them out By rymea

The traps work much better than expected. The first bait is still working but we are on bag number 5 in just three weeks. Good thing we had extras. I wish the bags were bigger or emptiable. I'm sure we are attracting beetles from far away but I think that is probably good. We will trap as many as we can and hopefully the population will be smaller next year.

great By alan

Very easy to put together. I bought many of these and all of them have done very well. One bag was overflowing. I hear people say all you do and that' that these t and that these traps are counter-productive. Regardless there are much fewer beetles around my house as a result of this product.

Japanese beetles decreasing and stink bugs moving in. Dang By JDClamppit

The traps catch a lot of the beetles but if they find my beans first they destroy the foliage very fast. I have 6 traps out and still have some getting to my beans. I bought 12 and I'm thinking of going to war with the beetles and put up all 12 traps because I am having to use insecticides on my beans and I hate to use that stuff. Now the stink bugs are competing with the Japanese beetles as to who can do the worst damage to my beans and tomatoes the stink bugs are tomatoes worst enemy. Arrrg

Skeptical at first. Proven results. By Chuck

I had never heard of these traps until I began working in the L&G Department at a national retail chain. I estimate that I had no fewer than 50 customers come in asking about the traps in the past 2 weeks; unfortunately, our Company chose not to carry these traps this year and I had to refer potential customers elsewhere. I have to admit, I was skeptical regarding the effectiveness of these traps; but, after so many requests at work and my garden and landscape plants in jeopardy, I decided to try them for myself. I am truly amazed with the results. I set out two traps this morning. By the time I got the second trap set, the first was already swarmed with beetles and expect to have to set up my refill bags by this evening. I will definitely be looking for these traps every year from now on!

Japanese Beetle Traps By Angelic Cooper
We have had an over abundance Japanese Beetle festation and I was so pleased to find your site which enabled me to purchase a large quantity of the traps at a very reasonable price. I could not purchase locally because they were all sold out. I received them in a very timely fashion. Thank you.

truly works at our flower farm By fmrFRKL
We've been using these for over 12 years. Their efficacy can be stated to be outstanding. I've changed 6 trap bags 3x in a month and can state that the net weight of the beetles therein averages between 2 1/2 and 3 lbs per change. No idea how many beetles in a pound but it's got to be a lot!

Control Options for Battling Japanese Beetles

Safer® Brand offers suggestions and strategies for natural and organic Japanese beetle control that are perfect for ridding your garden of these voracious eaters. Learn how to take advantage of the beetle’s natural predators, as well as create an environment for natural Japanese beetle control.

 

Japanese Beetle Controls

What?

Bag traps for Japanese Beetles are a popular way to control this pest in the yard & garden. The combination of Insecticidal Soap and Botanical Pyrethrins will also kill the Japanese Beetles on contact if they are spotted on your plants

How?

Bag Traps - hang the bag from a trap stand or an outdoor fixture. Make sure to hang the bag away from outdoor living spaces and away from your home as it has a powerful bait that will lure the Japanese Beetles in, trapping and killing them. Bag traps are typically baited with a food attractant, reproductive attractant or both.

As an added control measure, use a grub killer in conjunction with this trap. This will kill any grubs in the soil in case a female Japanese Beetle lays her eggs prior to entering the trap. See also All About White Grubs to learn more about the damage caused by the larval stage of this pest.

Insecticial Soap (Potassium Salts of Fatty Acids) & Pyrethrin - combined are the organic equivalant of a one-two knockdown punch. Japanese Beetles, like other hard bodied insects, are tough bugs to kill. The soap will penetrate their shell enough to weaken and dehydrate the insect and allow the pyrethrin to absorb into the insect and do its job.

Pyrethrin is a powerful nerve agent that will paralyze and kill the insect on contact Keep in mind this soap is not like dish detergent; it's a base from a blend of natural plant sources and pyrethrin oils which come from the chrysanthium flower An effective and organic combination...

Safer® Brand offers a variety of Japanese Beetle control products to help control and eliminate this garden pest and revive your plants. Please check out our Japanese Beetle control products for more details about how they work and how, when, where they should be applied.

When Should Japanese Beetle Traps be Placed?

Bag traps should be placed outside at the first spotting of a Japanese beetle For maximum Japanese beetle control, have your neighbors place Japanese traps at the same time.

Apply grub killer as directed on the product label to prevent grub damage, making sure to do one final application in the fall before the frost to kill the last of the grubs before they dig in deep to overwinter and molt into next year's Japanese Beetles.

Spray Insect Soap & Pyrethrin as a contact killer. Use in accordance with directions on the product label.

If you are concerned about a plant or unsure of how it will react to these solutions, test an inconspicuous area and wait 24 hours before applying full coverage As a general rule, much like watering, do not use any liquid insecticides in the peak of the day or when temperatures exceed 90°F.

 

Natural Predators of Japanese Beetle

What?

Parasitic wasps are a natural method of controlling the Japanese Beetle.

How?

The parasitic wasp lays its eggs on Japanese Beetles and its larvae that hatch will feed inside, usually resulting in the death of the host insect.

Planting nectar or pollen producing plants may attract parasitic wasps. The insects may also be purchased from commercial breeders or at your local garden center.

When?

The purchase of parasitic wasps can be done at any time during the season.

Nectar or pollen producing plants should be planted as an aid in attracting parasitic wasps. Most local greenhouses and garden centers can help you determine the right planting time for your area. 

Environmental Controls

What?

Knocking beetles off bushes, trees, and plantings is a simple method of controlling them.

Planting certain plants, shrubs, bushes and trees that do not attract the beetles will help to control the beetles in your yard. Row covers may help protect your vegetable plantings.

How?

Take a cup or bucket and fill it with soapy water. Knock the beetles into the cup. The soap will help prevent them from escaping their wet tomb. If there are many beetles, you can shake them into a cloth first before knocking them into the bucket of soapy water.

When planting shrubs, trees, bushes or flowers that do not attract Japanese beetles, check with your local garden center to see which kinds "fit the bill." A few common plants include carnations, daisies, snapdragons, violets, pansies, begonias, forsythias, lilacs, arborvitae and fir trees.

If Japanese Beetles are attacking plants in your garden or fields, you can opt to use a floating row cover to protect the plantings from the beetles These can be purchased at home and garden centers.

When?

When handpicking with a cup or bucket of soapy water, it is best to do this in the morning or evening when the air is cooler and the beetle is less active, making it easier to knock off the plant and into the water.

Planting shrubs, trees and flowers that are not attractive to the Japanese beetles should be done according to your climate zone If unsure, ask at your local garden center It is best to plant certain trees and shrubs in the fall Flower bulbs should also be planted in the fall, while annuals are usually planted in the spring, depending on the type of flower and the climate zone and temperature of your area.

Follow directions for using a floating row cover so it can provide the most effective protection from beetles.

FAQs

FAQs about Battling Japanese Beetles and Other Insects in Your Garden

Q: My plant leaves look chewed! Do you know what type of insect might do that?

A: Insects that have the ability to chew plants must have special cutters in their mouths for this purpose. Such insects may include caterpillars, beetles, and grasshoppers, for example.

Q: Can insect pests survive the winter and affect my garden next year?

A: Yes, many insect pests can survive cold wnters by "overwintering" under plant debris and leaves on the ground. This is why it is very important to remove plant debris after harvesting thi year's crops and then till the soil. By tilling, you are removing places these insects can "overwinter," destroying larvae or pupae in the dirt, and burying the eggs so far down in the soil they won't hatch in the spring. Very cold winters of the far north may kill the adult insects or larvae, but the eggs may remain unscathed and ready to hatch as the weather warms.

Q: How do I know if my plant is being attacked by an insect or a disease?

A:If it’s an insect, the plant may have holes in its leaves. Turn the leaves over and you may see the insects themselves clustered on the underside of the leaves. You may also see and feel a sticky substance if it’s an insect because the insect will leave a secretion on the plant.
