A trip to Longacres

I went to my local nursery this past weekend, looking for a spray to kill the tiny caterpillars that have been eating all the new buds on my crab-apple trees. In the bug-killer area, I see a can of Japanese Beetle spray called Hari Kari. I didn't look at the can closely, so I don't know if it sprays chemicals or actual tiny swords for the beetles to pick up and perform hari kari on themselves. I'd be interested to find out. (And I find it vaguely racist that the writing is in an Asian calligraphy style, like on Chinese menus.)
