June Bugs


Dozens of different species of Phyllophaga wear the June bug moniker since they make their appearance during the first month of summer. You might also know them as “May Beetles.” The adults emerge and congregate on screens and near lights in mid- to late-May and June to mate before laying eggs and dying. These often brownish beetles are nearly an inch long, and make a racket when they bang themselves against screens trying to reach the light source. Thankfully, they don’t bite, although it’s bound to send you screaming if one lands in your hair.
