"War of the Roses": WSJ writer uses RESCUE! Beetle Traps

In this story and accompanying video (below), a Wall Street Journal garden writer shares his frustration with Japanese Beetles and experiments with different methods of controlling them.

He ends up finding a three-pack of RESCUE! Japanese Beetle Traps at Costco -- "the largest (traps) I'd ever seen" -- and has success using them despite some earlier skepticism. He even catches a "flying brown beetle" that he'd never seen before. (That's likely an Oriental Beetle -- more on them next week.)
