Oh no 🙈 I’m guessing they’re a problematic bug?

Japanese beetles eat almost any leaf you have down to the skeleton @kez001uk

@emch is so right. They are like little chainsaws. I only saw one and he had already destroyed 2 leaves. Usually they come in groups. Last year they sawed their way through my false sunflower. 😡😡🤦‍♀️ @kez001uk

Now that I know what they look like I realize I have seen them around. I usually do don’t catch them doing their dirty work. Will be more vigilant now. 👍 @kez001uk

@hkyfvr like lily beetles, do the damage before you notice them most of the time 🙈 but they’re far less destructive than these look 😱

This plant was free when the grocery store closed its GC. It is grown mostly for foliage. I did not even think of the sweet potatoes. 🤔🤔 @crabby58

Yes it did. Thunderstorms this afternoon. We have the haze of smoke from fires in northern Ontario now. Air quality is poor. We had our windows cleaned today by a company called Men In Kilts. All the guys wear kilts but not sure about the undergarments. 🤣🤣 😅😅
