The Japanese Beetle (Popillia japonica) is a beetle about 0.6 inches (1.5 cm) long and 0.4 inches (1 cm) wide (smaller in Canada), with shiny copper-colored elytra and a shiny green top of the thorax and head. Although it is not very destructive in Japan, where it is controlled by natural enemies, in America it is a serious pest to rose bushes and other plants. It is a weak flyer and drops several centimeters when it hits a wall. Japanese Beetle traps therefore consist of a pair of crossed...
