Does anyone remember the community wide Milky Spore Application program from back in 2004? Here are a couple of old links I found from back then: http://www.milkyspore.com/litdownloads/SporeCPROG.pdf http://www.connectionnewspapers.com/news/2005/mar/22/death-to-beetles/ 10 years is about how long the spore is effective and I've been noticing an increase in the number of Japanese Beetles recently. I contacted the HOA to see if they were planning on running this program again but was told, "Our landscapers typically have not treated Japanese beetles for the whole community because the milky spore treatment only kills the beetles that are currently existing in the area that you treat – and to treat all 150+ acres would be extremely costly for the Association members. Additionally, this would not prevent nor kill any beetles that migrate over from untreated communities that border Broadlands. With Broadlands being a Certified Wildlife Habitat community we have to be careful not to disrupt the wetland areas with treatments or landscaping of any kind." I thought the whole point of using Milky Spore was to prevent people from using pesticides. I'm hoping there are enough people in the community who would be interested in this again. The more households that participate, the more effective.
