Japanese beetle traps and milkyspore sprayed on soil are two organic methods there may be others but these two are all I know about. Hope you find something that works. they can really eat alot. My grapes and roses and cannas are their favorite foods around my place. :flame:
I'm using an organic method to eliminate them. Right thumbnail pops off their heads as left thumb and forefinger are holding them. Very effective! Tried tossing them to the ground and stepping on them but now and then one will take off. Didn't find more than a half dozen total last year. Now easily finding that many during the daily walk-throughs in the bean patch.
