Japanese beetles - how long do they hang around?

This is the worst I've ever seen. They're just swarming everywhere, and it's like driving through hail!
They're devouring some of our trees.
Anyone remember how long they live?

If you get a trap put it as far away as possible, it attracts them, Ortho 7 can be sprayed on plants and trees to get rid of beetles.

But they aren't just going to die off without first going and laying their eggs on your lawn, so you'll need to treat your lawn with grubex (or similar) or them munching your leaves will look like NOTHING compared to your dead, sparse, brown lawn being dug up by crows and skunks....

Long enough to breed and lay eggs for the next season. Check with your local university extension for info on the critters and their control. The last thing you should not do is put a trap in your yard since it is an invitation for all the Japanese beetles to come to the feast.
There's a time slot in spring for applying chemicals to the soil. Once eggs are laid, there's not much to do except wait until next spring's time slot.

We had that happen years ago. Neighbors were all upset and spraying all over some crap. We did nothing. Nature took it's course and the next year all was fine and nothing was damaged. The birds had some nice meals eating grubs. I like to call the bugs - June Bugs.
