Figeaters eating Figs

Lovely Bug

These guys show up every year when the figs are ripe (July-Aug). About an inch long and maybe 5/8 thick. They usually mass on one fig and leave it in tatters.

Hi Kenneth,
We are so excited that you have sent us a photo of Figeaters eating Figs.  Figeaters are also known as Green Fruit Beetles.

  1. Back home, in the Ozarks, we called these “June Bugs”. It was fun to tie a piece of thread to a hind leg and let them fly around or catch a jar full of them just for fun or fish with. That was entertainment!
