Description of specimen

Don't have a specimen.
The flower plants are getting eaten.


I'm passing your request to the ODA Japanese Beetle program.

Here is the ODA JB eradication web page

You are not within the treatment area, so the damage you're seeing in your flower bed, I hope, isn't from Japanese Beetle. You may need to do some more scouting, maybe at night with a flashlight, to discover what's causing the damage.
