The Safer® Brand Japanese Beetle Trap uses a food and sex attractant to lure Japanese beetles into the trap and, in turn, disrupts the mating cycle. This kit includes everything you need to stop an infestation – a trap, 2 bags, 2 baits, and a stand to hang it on. The controlled release system maximizes the life of the attractant and protects the attractant from environmental degradation. Place this assembly at least 10 feet away from plantings to prevent defoliation.
How Baiting Works
The included Safer® Brand Japanese Beetle uses a food and sex attractant to lure insects into the trap and disrupt the mating cycle of destructive Japanese Beetles. This Japanese Beetle Bait uses no sprays and has no mess. Under ordinary weather conditions, this bait should last about 12 weeks.
Japanese beetles pose a significant threat to gardeners. These destructive pests can “skeletonize” plants by feeding on the leaf material between the veins, and they’ll even consume the plant fruit. Place the trap at least 10 feet away from plants to attract the beetles away from the target area. The 48-inch stand places the trap at the perfect height to intercept beetles as they fly by.
How to Use
For your convenience, the Safer® Brand Japanese Beetle Kit is easy to use and assemble. Be sure to 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.
Slide the trap vanes together at the slots to form an "X" and attach them witha a twist-tie through the holes in the top vane.
Attach one of the collection bags by gently sliding the holes in the bag over the hooks on the lower end of the trap vanes.
Peel back the protective cover on the bait pack.
Remove the backing from the adhesive strip on the bait pack and attach it to the lower third of the trap vane.
Hang the trap by the vane on the included trap stand.

Product is doing a good job of trapping and keeping beetles away from my paper bark birch tree, so far.
Product web page needs to be edited as there are references to 2 baits and a stand being included in the box, neither of which is currently true.
The traps attracted the beetles ... but they escaped again through the drain holes in the bag.

The traps attracted the beetles right away, which was awesome, bugs started to collect in the bag, so it seemed to be working, and then next day, there are less in the bag, and I see them all crawling out the holes at the bottom of the bag. Suggesting you redesign the bag, maybe put mesh over those holes, so that they don’t climb back out again.
Works as described. They were immediately swarming around as we put the bag up. We also put a bucket under it with soap and water for any that fell out. Had a full bag in less than 24 hours. Tried to submit video but site would not accept.
Good idea, too large of bottom wholes has them escaping!

The idea of the trap is good and even as I put it out the beetles were coming on/near me from the smell. The issue is the 3 sets of small holes at the bottom of the capture bag are too large, and the beetles can crawl out! So as many as I've caught (which is great) a number have gotten out. I saw at least 3 and I modified it last night with a plastic bag clear taped over it and this morning about 15 had crawled out the wholes and into my ziploc. Good idea, but major flaw with the hole size. Consider another brand.
These traps do collect Japanese Beetles! However, I am convinced that they draw as many as they kill. Last year, they attacked my okra but it was strong enough to live through it and produce a great harvest. However, the corn was not so fortunate. The attacked and ate the silks, which kept the corn from complete germination. If you use these, put them far away from the garden/flowers. Also, order extra bait and bags, especially the bags. A bag of dead beetles quickly becomes a stinking mess!
The $45.54 6 Pack- Safer Brand Japanese Beetle Trap for helped save our 12 new trees that were planted in our property after an EF1 tornado here in NW Connecticut, (May 15, 2018) and were being destroyed by these insects.
