What is the best way to prevent Japanese beetles on my plants?

Every summer we are overwhelmed by the Jap beetles that come and kill my rose, apple and cherry trees - Is there anything I can do to prevent them this year? I have tried insecticides but they have to be reapplied every time it rains... The Jap beetle traps ( bags with lure) don't really seem to help?
