Beetle invasion of the worst kind

Even Eddie the bug-eating dog is no match for the beetles.
We have launched a counter attack against the Japanese beetle invasion. They are attacking our green beans and my precious Swiss chard with fervor. Pseudo Seven by Ortho did not do much good at all. Organic Captain Jack is currently keeping them at bay but only till the next day, then we have to spray again. We think the spray is working sufficiently in addition to picking beetles off one-by-one. We hope to win and continue to have beans and chard.
