I would give neem oil a try. It is effective against other beetles and should work against this kind, both adults and grubs. It is organic and safe for people, pets and beneficial insects. Here is more information:

Q. names of [in-ground] sugar cane parts/elements

[from description of how 19th century slaves harvested sugar cane in Louisiana]:
…”The lead [field] hand, in the first place, with a blow of his knife shears the FLAGS from the stalk.”

So, what are these “flags”? Nothing I could find about sugar cane in general even used the word, never mind explain what, where located, these “flags” are. poor me….

The flags would be the leaves on the sugar canes themselves.
This link will help you visualize the process described in the literature.
