Any help would be appreciated. My basil is getting covered in mating Japanese beetles and they have eaten holes all over it. What can I do to stop them? I don't want to get one of those beetle bags, because I've been told that they just attract more beetles.

TIA!

Well, I've heard the same thing about those bags, but I get one every year because it does keep them off of my plants! The bags fill up every couple of days and I hang a new one...I go through about 5-6 bags a year. That's a lot of bugs, but as long as they are in the bag and not on my plants, I am happy.
