Something I was thinking while picking okra yesterday. It has been a long time since I last saw a japanese beetle on the okra. I remember back in the 80's, when all the fruit would be ate up by the japanese beetles. Everything in the garden, apples, grapes, plums, everything. What happened? Nature turned the balance. We do not spray Sevin on everything anymore. Beetles have stuff eating on them now to keep them in check. SHB will be that way soon. When the larvae go to the earth, so things will learn to like to eat them, just like with the japanese beetle.
