The answer to your question really depends on which insect exactly is causing the problem. However, if it seems to be the Japanese beetle which is a frequent pest on these plants, you might try using a neem-based spray to control them. Hand picking is also an option. For a more definite identification of the pest and suggested controls for it, you might wish to take a sample to your County Extension (678-7807) and ask for assistance.
