Haven't seen a single Japanese beetle this year

All I can say is YAY! I know it's still a little bit early for them, but insects don't respond to calendar dates. They will appear when the weather is suitable for them, and it's definitely been warm enough this summer! What I'm saying is if they were going to show up, they probably would've been here by now. Anyways, I'm not really sure why they're not showing up, but I think it has something to do with the flooding we had in the fields last year. I'm guessing the flooding killed most of the larvae in the soil, and hence almost no adults. Whatever the reason, I'm glad to be once again getting a break this year!
