chico, around here they have bags that are treated with some sort of scent or pheromone that attracts the Japanese beetles. They do attract more beetles to the area of the bag, so if you get one, hang it away from the gardens, but they do trap and kill lots of the beetles. Every beetle you eradicate this summer will mean fewer beetles next year!
