Japanese Beetles

These pesky insects love to defoliate the leaves, eating everything but the veins. Luckily for the American Lindon when a tree defoliates, as long as it was healthy to start it will not die. So after the beetles emerge, mate, eat every leaf in sight, and return to the ground to lay eggs, the tree should be able to regenerate its leaves. Here is the life cycle of the Japanese Beetle.
