Cucumber and Japanese Beetles

shgrt3 added on August 28, 2016 | Answered

How can I try to rid my garden areas of Japanese and cucumber beetles? They completely devastated one of my chrysanthemum plants along with a rose plant and my pumpkins, watermelons and cucumbers, even a stand of Cleome plants. I am going to clean it all up but need tips on what to do now and again in spring. Please help, Sheila
