The beetles are back

The Japanese beetles are back in full force. They started with our Wisteria tree/bush and are now attacking our green beans, Swiss chard and asparagus. Pseudo Seven by Ortho did not help last year, so we went straight to Organic Captain Jack, which 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. (yes, ooohhh).
We hope to win and continue to have beans and chard to pick.
If you're having other pest problems, here's a link to the National Gardening Association library for pest identification.
