Is this new container catching beetles?
Mugging for the camera, as I was out with my trash bag to empty the beetle jugs.
Yes, it is ... just as well as the bag did, I think. After two days in place, and each of my three traps was half full of beetles.
What about the raccoon?
The game camera captured one raccoon photo last night, an action shot. The little guy looks frustrated to me. I see no damage to the trap ... so far.
Beetle season is definitely waning, as I'm finding fewer and fewer of them during my morning trips through the garden to hunt them out and drop them into my bucket of soapy water.
I can't wait till they're gone.
