|I'm fighting what seems a losing battle against Japanese Beetles in my newly established dwarf cherry trees. Despite regular applications of Pure Neem Oil, the miserable beasts arrive in swarms, weighing down the branches, eating the leaves. I would estimate that my poor trees have lost 30% of their leafy surface area. What are their chances for survival? I do pick the beetles off into a bucket of soapy water, and I've taken (chemical) grub control measures, but I still I doubt that I'll win this war: I'm outnumbered. Might my trees survive despite my failure to defeat their enemies? Is there anything more I can do to defend them, short of blasting the region with some loathsome chemical that will also kill the honeybees?
