Does anybody know an easy effective way to rid your yard of June bugs?

The June bugs are completely destroying my roses. I can't find any answer at Home Depot, Lowe's, or Southern States. Please help!

Will bleach poured into the ground get rid of
the larvae and/or grubs? These bugs are
driving me nuts!

i think june bugs are the one of the most annoying insects because they fly around your head and get in your hair and crawl all over u and they are just so annoying. E-mail me back

Dreamweaver: seriously, did you ever manage to control your June Bug beetle problem? Our lawn is being ravaged by the larvae, and we seem to be doing everything right except using milky spore; by the way, I thought that diazanon was okay for worms? We do however, have highly acid soil; I just want to keep the skunks from snacking and leaving trip-holes, and the crows and starlings from so obviously using us as their banquet hall! Any successful remedies?

treat all of you yard or woodland area with milky spore. It kills the grubs that turn into the beatles.

or Treat with dursban or diazonon the idea is to kill the grubs that turn into the beatles you have to treat in the late summer early fall prior to the cold weather that drives the beatles down below the treatment levels..

once they have hatched sevin dust or spray.

DO NOT USE the beatle bags..they only will attract more to you yard. Buy them for your neighbors to attract the beatles away from your yard.

According to Terminix website: In healthy lawns and gardens, these grubs (June Bugs) feed on the succulent, tender roots of the plants. The grubs can infest the soil and cause major damage to lawns and gardens. In May or June the grubs will emerge as adult May or June beetles. JUNE BEETLES' NORMAL FLIGHT CYCLE FALLS INTO A 2-WEEK TO ONE MONTH TIME PERIOD, AT WHICH TIME THEY GO UNDERGROUND TO LAY EGGS.

Wait long enough and they will be gone. This bug is born to bang his head against the side of your house until his brains run out. You'd think it would be easy to outsmart 'em.

I'd say its better to control the grub worms. Diazanon crystals in the yard will work, but it also kills earthworms which are good for the aeration of you soil.

Treat your yard, especially around downspouts and anywhere that you have lights on at night for extended periods of time for grubs. Merit insecticide is probably the best for treating them. As for adults, a tennis racket, bug zapper, etc., can be handy and fun at times. I don't know of a treatment that will effectively eliminate all the adults from your area. They can fly for good long distances but if you treat the young-uns, you'll likely see some decrease in your immediate area.
