We used one of 3 products for japanese beetles this year.
1) a spring soil injection of merit 75wsp. on seasonal contracts with a history of this problem.

2) orthene spray or talstar spray on addendum customers and new customers. (orthene early stage of life cycle/ talstar if late in life cycle)

Also note we do not use merit on any plants that spider mites attack because we have found that the merit only makes the problem worse.

Hope this helps
