Ewww, Japanese Beetles

The hollyhocks, fall gold raspberry bushes and ostrich ferns are getting eaten by Japanese Beetles. They aren't doing any real damage, yet. Today I went out and picked what I could and drowned them in warm soapy water. I got quite a catch.
I am not sure why they are always hanging out together, but they are usually in pairs or trios. Rarely do I see a single beetle.
