They’re coming… June Bugs or June Beetles. They are really scarab beetles. There are several different species that can be bothering you. They usually arrive in late May or early June. However, there have already been reports of the pesky June Bugs in the Nashville area (Murfreesboro, Smyrna, Antioch, Franklin, Brentwood, Columbia, Lebanon etc.).

Your grass roots, garden, flowers and plants may be destroyed by these seasonal visitors. But good news! We can help you to get rid of June Bugs with just a couple steps.


Get Namatodes

Although this needs to be done in advance, think Fall, the Nematodes are a small but effective way to get rid of the June Bug larvae. How does it work: The grub eating parasites will eat the larvae of the June Bugs while they are “in the womb” and are unsuspecting. Reminder; This must be done in the fall. Read more about the tiny but mighty Nematode here and here.

Spray Your Lawn With a Pesticide*

*Pesticides can be very dangerous to good insects in your yard. It is crucial to find the best product for your exact problem. And remember, killing adults won’t eliminate your problem completely because there may be larvae in your soil ready to hatch next year. Read the directions carefully to avoid overexposure of chemicals to your lawn and water table.


Attract and Utilize Natural Predators

Do you have a pond? Frogs, toads and birds are predators to June Bugs. Frogs are carnivores and will each just about anything they can fit in their mouths. Frogs and toads are also active at night when June Bugs were active. Adult female toads will eat up to 81% of unwanted yard pests!
