Webinar Description:  Exotic, invasive Japanese beetle (JB) defoliates leaves of many trees, landscape plants and removes roots from turf.  The IPM principles are the same, but the pests are different.

  • Learn what insecticides to use to kill pests and conserve predators, parasitoids, and bees.
  • Learn new and old ways to control this invasive pest using trunk injections, bark sprays, and microbial, biorational, and conventional insecticides. 
  • Learn why the life history of JB makes it more of a pest that other invasive and native beetle species in the same family. 
  • Learn how to identify the adults and grubs of 8 species of beetles in the same beetle family. 
  • Learn why JB populations have increased since 2015.
  • Learn how to control JB on trees with fruits as different insecticide labels are needed.


  • The webinar begins at 12:00 p.m.
  • The webinar is 50 minutes with 10 minute discussion and questions.
  • A handout of the slides and a management bulletin will be provided.
