MORE – Japanese Beetles

–by Dr. Jeff Whitworth and Dr. Holly Schwarting

Japanese beetle adults have also been emerging over the past week or two.  These adults will feed on just about any pollen, nectar, or succulent plant source for a few days then disperse to begin ovipositing into the soil.  The adults may attack emerging silks in corn or new succulent leaves in soybeans, but typically only around the edges of fields.
