Popillia japonica

Japanese Beetles were introduced to the United States in the early 1900s where they quickly became a problem for farmers. The larvae eat grass roots while adults feed on leaves, flowers, and fruit of both agricultural and ornamental plants. Unfortunately in the Unitd States they have few natural enemies so they are a major pest.
