It seems the perfect time of year to post about this pest species Beetle with Halloween looming around the corner! ๐ŸŽƒ๐Ÿ‘ป๐Ÿฆ‡๐Ÿงน๐Ÿง™

Here's the life cycle of this particular Beetle...

๐ŸŽƒ After mating the female lays batches of about eight eggs in the soil.

๐ŸŽƒ The eggs are orange and oval and hatch in one to two weeks.

๐ŸŽƒ The grubs at first feed on leaf debris, roots and parts of the host plant in contact with the soil.

๐ŸŽƒ They pass through four moults as they grow, and pupate in earthen chambers just below the surface of the soil.

๐ŸŽƒ After a further week to two and a half weeks, the adult beetles emerge, climb the host plant and start feeding.

๐ŸŽƒ The females start laying eggs within a week or so. There may be five generations over the course of the summer.
