So check this out... I was admiring my traps this morning, and found a big old hole in the center of one of my traps that was closed last night. Guess that bug decided he must get out, and ate himself a hole to crawl through! Has anyone ever seen this before?

I kind of had a thing like this happen only the bug chewed through the cilia of the trap before it made a complete seal around the bug. But i cursed the bug and poked it back into the trap with a toothpick before it was totally closed hehe.

Japanese beetles can do this. My biggest plant digested a small one , but it did plenty of internal damage to the trap first, and I'm going to lose the trap.

My poor tea roses. Black spot, japanese beetles, arrrrg. I hope the plants make it through the winter.

Thanks,
