Thought you might like this photo of mating beetles taken August, 2006. These two are mating a hibiscus leaf which they ‘love’ feeding on and other ‘things'<:)) I titled this ‘Dance Of Love’ in my photo gallery at BetterPhoto.com.
The Japanese Beetles are late in Philadelphia. This pestiferous alien introduction is continuing to expand its range. They decimated my mother’s Ohio garden in July but they have died out for another year. They are especially problematic as they eat such a wide variety of plants. Recently I acquired a pamphlet from the California Department of Food and Agriculture warning of their introduction to California.
