McBride Berra LLC is planning a 50+ acre development with 124 new homes at Gravois Road and Musick Road, but neighbors say those roads are already holding all the traffic they can handle.

The University of Missouri Extension service says the ravenous pests are rearing their heads and gardeners should be wary.
Japanese beetles are invading, according to the University of Missouri Extension service, and gardeners should be on the lookout. The service said the beetles are about three weeks early in Missouri, including Affton and Shrewsbury. “Certainly we need to be looking at this point,” said Wayne Bailey, a state entomologist for University of Missouri Extension, in a statement. “These beetles are gregarious feeders, so if you have one, a lot will come in."
