Japanese & Oriental Beetle Trap
The trap uses floral scents proven to be a natural attractant, along with the beetle's natural sex attractant. The trap uses a scientifically designed method to control the release of these natural floral and sex attractants to lure both male and female beetles to the trap. The convenient plastic cone design prevents the user from having to handle the actual attractants.
Central attractant placement disperses pheromone in all directions
New zippered bottom allows trap to be emptied and reused
Catch capacity is four times larger than the competition
Double-layer nylon bag is highly durable
An all-in-one trap, with no accessories to buy
Bright green panels and the bag are welded together to ensure the bag stays attached
Once attracted by the pheromone scent, Japanese beetles fly into the large yellow panels of the trap and are stunned on impact. They then fall into the attached bag. Once inside, they cannot fly out of the trap.
Where and How To Use
The trap should be placed at least 30 feet from ornamental plants, to lure beetles away from the area where they are creating damage. Hang the trap by its twist-tie hanger from a post or stake, such as the RESCUE!® Rod four feet above the ground, away from the desired foliage. During heavy rain or wind, the trap should be removed to a protected location.
Infestation of the adult Japanese beetles occurs mid-June in the southern part of the United States, and around July 4 in the Northeastern and Upper Midwestern part of the U.S.
What People Are Saying
Our mild winter in NH meant that lots of bugs and their larvae survived when normally they wouldn't. This included the scourge of the Oriental beetle as well as 2 months of Japanese beetles.
In the past I had limited success with the other "standard" beetle bagging system (to the point that I quit using it). Out of desperation I decided to give RESCUE! a try.
Not only did I try it, but I did a side by side "shoot out" of the two products adjacent to my vegetable garden. It captured at least 10 times more Japanese beetles than the competition, plus I received the benefit of the Oriental beetle capture which saved my viburnum blossoms; they are typically decimated each year.
I own chickens, and the ability to open the zip pouch and give them the beetles as a tasty treat when temps dropped in the evening (and the beetles are less active) was an extra bonus.
I have shared the discovery of your product with my Facebook gardening group and am absolutely delighted with your product.
If I had to make any suggestion at all, it would be to provide some sort of weep holes for rainwater to drip out. Otherwise, you have one enormously satisfied customer here.
Consider my garden "RESCUED!" :)
Recommended by the Paul Parent Garden Club, these are definitely worth their weight in gold!
I spent years spraying and using regular Japanese beetle traps, but was those did nothing to rid me of the voracious eating Oriental beetles.
I have found my plants and flowers healthier and more productive.
I would like more retailers carry this product for availbility. The company might consider making a bait only product. With heavy rains lately, I may have lost some of the potency of the lure, but the bag is still in great shape.
We love it's Made in USA.
Thank you so much for a product that really works.
I used two of your traps for the first time two years ago, when my flowerbeds were attacked by Oriental Beetles for the first time. They collected beetles at an amazing rate for the rest of the season. I was very pleased with how well they worked. At the end of the summer, I took them down, emptied them, and sealed each in a ziplock bag. Last summer, there were so few beetles that I never hung the traps. This summer, I started seeing Japanese beetles on my roses. Still no oriental Beetles (or so I thought). I took the traps out, still sealed in their ziplock bags, and went to get the stakes. By the time I returned, there was a swarm of both Japanese and Oriental Beetles around the sealed bags with 2 year old bait! The bags are now hung again, and 2 more have joined them. My only possible complaint is that the bags are so durable that I would like to save them for another year and replace the bait, but Lowe's doesn't sell your bait (just the competition's bait). Do you sell the bait separately, or will it necessary to replace the traps in order to get fresh bait next year?
These bags work great!!!!!!!! Have empty mine every two days . I would guess I've trapped a good 20-30 pounds. This year with little lost to them My garden is produceing well and my trees still have there leaves. North Alabama
For the last three years, I have watched helplessly as the Japanese beetles destroyed my poplar, elm, and fruit trees. Not this year! I placed five traps over my two acres and in one week I have caught 24.5 lbs of beetles! YES! 24.5 POUNDS of beetles. We empty them every day, wash them out and rehang them. The beetles go crazy for these traps! Also, as a plus, the customer service there at RESCUE! rocks! It's nice to buy something made in the united states from a company that stands by their product. So happy!
Just a quick note about your beetle bag, I can't say enough about them. They are one of the best products that I have ever used.
I just wish that they were in more stores and easier to find,as they are number one with me for doing everything they say it can do.
Thanks from me and my garden.
I am very pleased with the RESCUE!® Japanese and Oriental Beetle Traps and have used them for the past couple years. I’m very happy with the addition of the zipper on the bottom of the bag to empty out the beetles and reuse the trap. This is a phenomenal product. It works better than anything else that I have ever used. In fact, I was at my local garden center and saw a woman pick up a different trap. I told her “you don’t want to buy that one” and talked her into the RESCUE!® trap. It’s just a great, great product!
I wanted to send a quick note and thank you for an amazing product. Two years ago I had an awful problem with Japanese beetles attacking my rose plants. I am thankful to say after using your product last year, I did not see one beetle in any of my roses throughout the growing season. It’s very rare to find a product that actually works, yours does and you all need a great deal of credit. I was very happy and will be using your RESCUE!® Japanese and Oriental Beetle Traps this spring. They are well worth the cost and are extremely effective.
