What is a June Bug?
This little 1-inch bug is one of over 260 species of scarab beetles across North America.
Did you know after years of being in an insect larvae stage of development, the June Bug hatch out? They emerge from the ground mostly in June, seeking a mate.
But many people say they see plenty of them in May (but then we would have to consider them May bugs and that complicates matters).
These little creatures have a hard black or brown shell-covering and wings. They live about a year or two. They eat leaves. Toads and lizards eat them.
If you want to catch sight of a June Bug turn on the porch light. They LOVE the light!
Watch this video of a “June Bug Invasion!” They are EVERYWHERE!!
