Anyone else have trouble on their pear and cherry trees with pear slugs (sawfly larvae)?

http://www.ipm.ucdavis.edu/PMG/r603302211.html

These slimy guys did a bit of damage to my pears (asian and european) and cherry trees before I picked them off. They are back again this year, right on schedule. I am hand picking again, but I'd like to see if anyone has come up with a way of getting nature to resolve the problem? Encourage a natural predator, some kind of sawfly detering companion plant, etc...?
