    boggerless... it's a bit late in the season for it, but next (just had one of the bastards pop out of my keyboard) spring, I'll be ordering a bunch of praying mantis egg cases from the local super size pet store. I don't know if you can get them over across the little pond, but if you can't I'll be more than happy to send you a few cases for cost plus shipping. There are about 300-500 eggs per case, and they come in a critter keeper. all you do is wait for them to hatch, let them out, and they eat all the asian beetles. The best thing about them is that they can't overwinter up here in da nort, so they all die off in the cold. This means no new infestation of another non-indigenous species like Asian Beetles... the little bastards... anyway... that's the only way I know of to kill them, and it's quite effective.
