Up in Northern Vermont where I live we have Japanese Beetles and they are known to defoliate Lindens.  Keep them sprayed with an insecticide of some sort it will help. I have the same problem. The beetles will not totally diminish but you can control them from defoliating the leaves to a certain point.
