I'm amazed that any of you don't have them.  We have fought Japanese Beetles 
here since the 50s at least, although milky spore disease helped to get them 
under control for a while - then it disappeared from the market. I'm sure I 
remember a cartoon from the 60s or 70s showing space-suited persons discovering 
them on the moon.
