In Queensland what damage does a cowboy beetle do in the garden?
I have noticed a lot of cowboy beetles in my yard this summer. I wasn't able to find a lot of information about them but apparently the grubs feed on compost so I assume that actual damage to lawn\living plants would be minimal. From what I can see they don't seem to appear on lists of insect pests so that's a good sign.
I'm working on the principle/assumption that if they were really dangerous to gardens then there would be a whole lot more readily available information on them out there. Including information on what pest control products to use against them.
The kind of beetle in your garden will depend on where in the world your garden is located, and what season of the year it is.
A red and black beetle in the garden is commonly called a ladybug. There is also a Japanese beetle that comes around in the fall months to eat soybean crops. The ladybug is harmless, but the Japanese beetle can bite and leave welts on the skin.

Food sources, forest regeneration and scientific research are benefits of beetle epidemics. Beetle epidemics center upon concentrated areas of forest land so that damage is done in a clearly identified area, as compared to the damage of a deer harming every rose bush in a garden by selectively eating a couple each from all shrubs instead of all roses from one woody plant. They make it possible for controlled, prescribed burns to clear-cut the damaged… Read More

These… Read More

Very short if they come to my garden pond! Killed 4 adults at the beginning of the month and am now catching 5 to 30 larvae a day. Robins love them! I prefer to keep my pond for the frogs, toads, newts and goldfish thankyou.
