Spectracide Bag-A-Bug Japanese Beetle Products

If the leaves on your plants are looking a little like Swiss cheese, you could have a Japanese beetle infestation on your hands. These half-inch critters with distinct metallic green hats feast upon the inner parts of leaves and flowers, leaving the hard stems behind. If you see one Japanese beetle, hundreds more aren’t far behind.

Spectracide Bag-A-Bug Japanese Beetle Trap is a highly effective way to help your landscape and garden plants bloom beetle-free.

Controlling Japanese Beetles

How do you know if you have Japanese beetle damage?

Japanese beetles leave telltale signs – here’s how to tell if you need to take action with Spectracide Bag-A-Bug Japanese Beetle Trap:

Leaves are lacy and skeletonized, with only the veins remaining

Trees that are severely infested may have a scorched appearance

Adult Japanese beetles are visibly flying around plants – they’re daytime feeders and most active when it’s warm and sunny

Japanese beetle biology

Japanese beetles are highly social, voracious eaters that are in tune with chemical cues in the environment. A receptive female releases a pheromone that can attract males from far distances, and it’s not uncommon to see large clusters of male beetles vying for a single female in the center. Certain flowers – roses in particular – can also be powerful attractants. Japanese beetles will burrow into these flowers, eating along the way.

The dual-action lure in Spectracide Bag-A-Bug Japanese Beetle Trap plays on these chemical cues, utilizing oral and pheromone scents to attract Japanese beetles by the hundreds.

Ideal placement of Spectracide Bag-A-Bug Japanese Beetle Trap

For best results, place the trap downwind of foliage to intercept beetles heading toward plants (30 ft from susceptible plants is an ideal distance). Placing the trap in or near foliage could attract more beetles to these areas.

Hang the trap at the correct beetle flight height (the bag should be at least 1 foot off of the ground) – suspending from a post, fencing or stake works well.

The trap should be free to move in the wind without obstruction, and it should be out of reach of small children.

The free-standing Spectracide Bag-A-Bug KwikStand places the lure at the ideal height, and it’s movable to keep your trap downwind of foliage.

Frequently asked questions

Q: How does Spectracide Bag-A-Bug Japanese Beetle Trap work?

A: The floral lure is highly effective at attracting Japanese beetles. When they land, they clumsily fall into the bag below and get stuck there by the hundreds.

Q: Why does my lure no longer attract beetles?

A: To avoid repelling Japanese beetles due to the odor of dead beetles, you should replace your bag every 4 or 5 days or when the lower portion is full of dead beetles.

Q: Why are Japanese beetles escaping from the bag?

A: Nocturnal animals, including skunks or cats, can be attracted by the scent of trapped Japanese beetles and cause damage to the trap. If you’re having trouble with this, replace the damaged bag and bring the trap inside each night to prevent future damage.
