Green beans and japanese beetles ... are my plants doomed?

11 years ago

Hi all. I am having an awful time with japanese beetles getting my green bean plants. I have searched the forum and saw many use soapy water and just collect the beetles. I have been doing this (you can see a small blue bucket in the lower right). The bucket fills daily but they are ruthless. I cannot keep up with them.

I noticed tody the flowers seem to be weakening. They go from white to an off white and the seem to be dying.

I am trying to avoid chemicals. If the beetles keep it up, will beans still grow? Or are my plants doomed?

I am very temped to get the beetle bags but I have read to avoid ding this.

Anything else I can do?
