Japanese Beetles arrive in Madison

Luckily the Japanese beetles have not reared their ugly little iridescent heads at Sampson Valley Vineyard, but they have returned to Madison. I usually see them around July 1, so they are about 2 weeks ahead of schedule.

Below is a picture I took of one on my Marquis seedless vines in front of my house in Madison this morning. He met his demise a very short time later.
