Clever Gardening Technique

Removing Unwelcome Asian Beetles
When frosty weather arrives in force, Asian beetles will converge on windows in search of a warm winter home. Assuming you do not plan to host these beneficial insects for the season, collect the ones that wiggle their way into your house with a hand-held vacuum and take them back to the great outdoors to find a more appropriate home in a tree crevice or under a rock. Be aware that the yellow blood of these insects, if smashed, can stain carpets, draperies and painted walls.
