Default First Japanese Beetle Spotted

It's that time of year again. On my evening walk around the garden I spied one Japanese beetle on a Blue Lake bean leaf. It got away. Then I found a second one on a Knockout rose leaf. It didn't get away.

I've read that it's important to get as many of the first beetles as possible as they are scouts who will report back to the masses where the good stuff is. I don't know if that's true but I'm now on a daily morning hunt.
