Here's a link to a USDA pamphlet (PDF) on Managing the Japanese Beetle: A Homeowner's Handbook. It includes methods on how to survey the Japanese beetle population in your yard; chemical, cultural, biological and mechanical controls; and lists of plants that are more susceptible and more resistant to Japanese beetle feeding. One thing they do bring up is that the Japanese beetle is here to stay, so complete eradication will not be possible. Instead, homeowners should seek to manage these beetle populations while exerting minimal impact on their environment.
The great thing about gardening is that you always get a chance to start over!
