Japanese beetle destroying Harry Lauder shrub.
Me destroying Japanese beetles.
I've been picking these nasty little fuckers off the shrub every time I pass by. I drop them into a mason jar of water and dish soap. They are not easy to flick into the jar unless you have gloves on. I squeam every time I touch one by accident without gloves. Then I cuss some more.

PS: Sometimes going organic is just fucking nasty. Suck it up and do it.
PSS: I didn't put the grasshopper in there. It must have suicided.
