Hanging by a thread

Japanese beetles hatched recently from the turf in the Arboretum Grass Collection and are “piling on” and hanging by a thread on this ‘Shenandoah’ switchgrass flower on July 15, 2014. Japanese beetle adults do not eat grasses, but they congregate on leaves, mate and look for other food. IMG_7413
