  • Paul Recher says that the classic method of handling monolepta when you know they are around is to make a fire and the beetles fly into it. He was told this in 1977 when he worked as nursery manager at a farm for handicapped with big avocado plantation where a few trees were getting hit hard. He then read the same thing in a book about the fire thing being used in late 1890’s early twentieth century.
