How is the grape vines.......

Went out last night to spray the grape vine again since last year there was a case of black rot. Last night was the 4th or 5th time of spraying down the vine and so far I am really pleased with how the vines look. The grape vine measures 6'x 8' and I am hoping to get close to 100lbs of grapes this year to make wine and some jelly.
One thing I did notice while spraying the vine is the Japanese beetles are starting to make the vine their home, so here is my question. If I put my bug bag close to the grape vine, do you think more beetles would go to the grape vine before the bug bag?.......

I think you'd get more beetles to the bag from the vine than you would from anywhere else to the vine. I believe those bags have some kind of phermone attractant and the beetles cant resist the chance to reproduce. IMO.

Don't use those beetle attractors, spray with sevin and the beetles will drop off as you spray.




When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

I am going to spray the vine again later today, hopefully the beetles stayed away. I didnt put the bug bag out because I didnt want to give the beetles another reason to come closer to the vine.......

My fox grapes at camp show no signs of anything going on and they are heavy with grapes.
