Japanese beetles can be a tough pest to control. You can hand pick the adults or use Insecticidal soap or a product called neem oil. Both are considered organic controls. Look for these controls in your garden center. Japanese beetles are cyclic and they will probably return next year. Even if you rid your yard of the adults and larvae this year, new pests will fly in from neighboring yards. Good luck with your eradication project!
