Bug Attack: Part II

About a week ago, the pesky little Japanese beatles that took over the netting on my balcony last summer – whose purpose is to keep out another type of pesky animal, the pigeon – reappeared again.

I’ve tried citronella candles, bug spray, Windex (hey, I’m desperate) and even the $8 Japanese beetle-catcher device from the handware store, but to no avail.

Last night, I thought I had an ally when I caught sight of a monstrous dragonfly eating one of them, but he (or she) hasn’t been back since; I just went outside and there they are again, in a congreagtion about 30 deep.

Any suggestions on how I might get rid of these little pests?

    sounds like you’ve been watching a little too much “my big fat greek wedding”… (windex was the answer for all of life’s ailments according to the father)…

    Maybe you could deep fry them?

    Automotive Brake Parts cleaner and not the environmentaly friendly stuff. Kills 99% of bugs dead and can be used for many household stain removal needs.
