try SKIN SO SOFT by Avon.............they repel mosquitoes  are they japanese beetles as they have traps for them.  put those traps down wind from your garden not in the garden.  They lay eggs in your ground in late summer, so lime that ground when all the plants are out..............and turn it...the birds will pick those eggs up after it rains the lime away.........eggs have to be under the ground to survive when you turn the soil that wrecks their life cycle.  Wear long clothes with rubber bands on the ends to keep them out...

SkinSoSoft won't work, it will just make you greasy and smelly.  Pine beetles are NOT japanese beetles.  If you want to try to eradicate the beetles call your university's extension service or consult a qualified landscaper, arborist or garden center.
You can wear a bee keeper's suit...
I thnk that you must have pine beetles because pine trees are close to you.  I think if you control them by spraying the pine trees, you will save the pine trees and get rid of your problem.
