Asian Beetles, sometimes called Japanese Beetles are a very common pest in and around Omaha, Nebraska. In 1912 a shipment of plant bulbs was brought over to the states with Irish bulbs containing some grubs or beetles. With no natural enemies or competition the Japanese Beetle was able to establish itself easily in the United States. The Asian lady beetle was first recorded as a pest in a home in 1988 in Louisiana after it began being used as a biological control agent for certain crops.
Asian lady beetles are frequent invaders during the fall or winter and are easily identified by the spotted pattern and the large, black ‘W’ on the thorax behind the head. They often appear in shades of yellow, orange and red and have varying numbers of spots except for the male of the species, which are often without any spots.
The adult Asian Beetle feeds on over 300 types of plants including roses, linden trees, soybeans, grapes and more. They have sharp chewing mouth parts used to eat leaves, fruit and flowers.
