Enchantra Posted February 20, 2008 Share Posted February 20, 2008 I woke up this morning to get ready for work. I'm in the kitchen making breakfast. I'm not the most lucid person first thing in the morning so when I saw something fly through the kitchen I didn't give it a second thought. I take my oatmeal into my room so I can eat and check my email and I head back to the kitchen to grab my mug of tea. There on the floor, freshly squished by my own foot was a Japanese Beetle! I took a Kleenex, picked it up and examined it till my brain kicked in and I said, "What the heck?" Mom happened to get up to get ready for work and I showed it to her. The only thing her and I can think of, is we have some that are in the houseplants that had been outside on the front porch over the summer or on the back deck. Great, just what we needed - Japanese beetles inside the house in the middle of winter with pets around so using toxic substances is a bit of a no-can-do. The prime suspects I would say would be Dad's two potted Tropical Hibiscus as neither has been doing to well inside, even with extra light. I don't think I've ever heard of Japanese Beetles inside a house in winter before! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
