The Japanese beetle has been chewing all my roses. My roses are no longer an ‘amazing blaze’ but they are anorexically scrawny. Well, according to the gardening guru (i.e. the internet), one of the effective way to control the invasion is to shove them in a soapy water. I managed to get the culprit.

When beetles fight these battles in a bottle with their paddles
and the bottle’s on a poodle and the poodle’s eating noodles…
…they call this a muddle puddle tweetle poodle beetle noodle
bottle paddle battle.
