They are easiest to catch in the morning and evening. The Japanese beetle just emerged here in my area last week.

DO NOT use the Japanese Beetle traps! They put out a pheromone that will ATTRACT beetles for 1/4 mile. I sprayed my green beans with Sevin and there is a pile of dead beetles in the rocks right under the trellis.

To catch Japanese beetles, fill a jar with water and a bit of dish detergent, hold it under the leaf on whch the culprit sits and tap the beetle with your finger. It will drop down a bit before it flies off so just lift your jar as it takes off and into the pond it goes. Voila!

Those are June Bugs/Beetles. They're just as bad as Japanese beetles though, so eliminate them! See this link on bugguide.net:

I posted these links in error in another thread but they are an interesting philosophy on controlling Jap Beetles.
