Green June (sometimes called Fruit) Beetle
How do I get rid of adult Green June Beetles. We do not have piles of leaves or a compost pile. The adults come into our lawn and leave their larvae. There are treatments for the larvae that we have read about, but how do we get rid of the adult beetles...they seem to love me and I am terrified of them, as they want to bore into my head.

They are a bit of a nuisance, aren't they? There are a few things you can do to control the adult beetles. I personally use things like, garlic extract, rosemary oil, lavender oil, mint oil, neem oil, and wettable sulfur, to keep them away.
