I live in the Garden Ridge area and we had 3 inches of rain yesterday. Today we have Japanese beetles swarming our lawn. They are all over. Do I need to worry??

Expert Response

I would venture to guess that you do not have Japanese beetles in your yard, but instead fig beetles. Fig beetles usually emerge this time of year and sometimes in really high numbers. You can see a photo and get more information on my blog:
