I think this species tops everything I have growing at my house. The beetles go ballistic for them.

They’re favored over cherry, apple, and hazelnuts that they also hit.

Buddy of mine uses them for panfish bait. Takes the trap full of beetles and a 5 gallon bucket with a frozen water jug in it. Sits on the bucket and drops the fish in it, goes home and cleans the cold fish.

Traps are worthless! All they do is attract more beetles to the area!
I'm going with a multisystem approach to controlling the beetles. Milky spore has been applied to the sod, nematodes are next to be added, I collect the beetles with a bait net on their ice cream plants, and then also use the traps.

I've been using imidacloprid as a root soak to save an ash tree in my front yard (emerald ash borer protection) what's left goes around any jap beetle loving trees and shrubs in the yard. Haven't seen a beetle in a few years.
