Update To Article On Japanese Beetle TrapI want to comment on an article in a recent issue about a reader who uses a 5-gal. bucket (Vol. 43, No. 4), instead of a bag, on his Japanese beetle trap. Several years ago I also replaced the bag using a 2-ft. long square piece of vinyl square tubing designed to protect a 4 by 4 post. A piece of pvc pipe would work just as well. I attached the trap and tubing to a pole and hung it over the pond with the bottom of the tube about an inch off the water. Within 2 min., a bluegill snapped up the first beetle killed. So it feeds the fish and there are no dead bugs to clean up. (Mike Stauffer, Leonardtown, Md.)
