The June Beetle will appear on warm spring evenings and are attracted to lights. large-bodied, they are about 1 in. long and have shiny wings. They eat on foliage and flowers at night, causing much damage. The larvae live in the soil, and can destroy crops and kill lawns and pastures by severing grass from its roots;

they are considered excellent fish bait.
