If we are talking Jap Beetle damage, yes, but you would have to reapply after rains wash it off, but that's true whether you use sevin, permethrin, etc. Not sure if any of the systemic insecticides work on leaf eating insects, or if the insecticides would concentrate in the nuts if used on bearing age trees (with effects on wildlife eating the nuts). Systemics absorb into the tree and wouldn't need reapplication after rain if they would work. Jap beetles have hit mine hard in the past, and really don't cause any long term damage, so I just let it go.

Whatever is eating on these is turning some of the leaves into webs. I will seven them this weekend.

That's exactly what Jap Beetles do. Looks like lace when they are done. And they do like chestnuts over many other trees. Apple trees are high on the list too, and beans.

They must not have liked the heat inside those tree tubes. No more damage this week so far. I will get some seven and keep it on hand, but they look good right now.

My runt tree is hurrying to catch up. Something ate all the leaves off of it when it was just a tiny sprout. I kept watering it and its growing out of it.

I have apples and chestnuts planted side by side in the same field - the jap beetles will choose the chestnuts every time!

Now sweet cherries - that's another story - if I don't keep them sprayed the jap beetles will choose them over every other fruit tree/chestnut.

Isn't that weird. I've got apples, peaches, cherries and pears in my home orchard, and they favor Liberty Apple over all else.
