June is for June bugs

April showers bring May flowers, and June is for June Bugs. I just made that last part up, but it holds some truths. I mean, after the blooms come the bugs, followed by the heat. Ack!

I am curious, does everyone have june bugs? And, to clarify a june bug is not just any bug that is found in the month of June. Nope.


noun

Also called May beetle. any of several large, brown beetles of the genus Phyllophaga, of the scarab family, appearing in late spring and early summer. green June beetle.


Please disregard, “also called May Beetle” because that does not fit my narrative.

These bugs are large, with hard shells and needle like legs (and a lot of them). They are harmless to you and me, but to plants they can wreak havoc by feasting upon the leaves and decimating vegetation.

But, that’s not the reason for this post. Nope. It is not. I am curious if you have June Bugs in your region because we had them something terrible in Texas, and they still have them because that colony did not relocate with me, but we do have them here in Nevada, too. Two entirely different climates.

I was going to give you a brief scientific lesson on these little buggers, but decided against it; that also does not play into my narrative.

What I want to know is, do you have June Bugs in your yard? Yes or No? See the image below and then type your answer in the comment box. Thank you.
