I did a lot of research on Jap. beetles for my book. Milky spore is a
long term help, but you have to get everyone in the area to use it or
the beetles just come in from the surrounding area. Surround is a good
preventative on fruits that are easily washed, but berries could be a
problem to clean.

Although I've never used it, it sounds like you have a good case for
"Milky Spore". Start doing some research on that, and you may be able
solve your problem.
Since we seem to be on a Raspberry roll. Our biggest problem last year
Japanese beetles. They covered our plants ( and Trees ). We had no idea
to use on the berries. Tried flicking them into a pail with soapy water
which only seemed to open up places for more beetles to land. We like to
munch on whatever is available when we work in our orchard. I thought of
Surround but I don't know if you could ever that grit out of a berry ?
Any help would be great.
