This year I haven't seen any of those horrible pests on the beans. I found a few on my roses in the front yard, and got them off pretty quickly, and they don't seem to be interested in these heirloom beans at all. This in turn means I haven't had a Japanese Beetle problem in my garden at all so far this year. I am so happy! Wonderful, tasty, pretty heirloom beans and not a Japaneetle in sight. Yay!
