The Japanese Beetle is an invasive species that can cause significant damage to our environment and local economy. The beetle feeds on grapes, peaches, sweet corn, turfgrass, ornamental plants, and more. If it establishes and goes unchecked, the spread of this beetle will affect everyone.

This contract is the first step in a multi-year effort that includes grub control treatments on all irrigated turf in the infested area (approximately 260 acres). This area will be treated with Acelepryn, an effective reduced-risk pesticide known to be safer than dish soap.

Property owners are highly encouraged to sign the consent form that was recently mailed to them to receive treatment. 

Eradicating the Japanese Beetle is critical to protecting our economy and our residents.
