Washington: U.S. Dept. of Agriculture, Abstract The Japanese beetle, Popillia japonica Newman, an introduced scarab, has become the most widespread and destructive insect pest of turf, landscapes, and nursery crops in the eastern United States.

It also damages many fruit, garden, and field crops. This review emphasizes recent research on the beetle's biology and by: Description. The following description of Popillia japonica biology is based on the detailed account by Fleming ().

Adult. The adult is an attractive and broadly oval beetle, 8 to 11 mm long (1/3 to 1/2 inch) and 5 to 7 mm (~1/4 inch) wide with females normally being larger than males. The Japanese beetle, Popillia japonica Newman, an introduced scarab, has become the most widespread and destructive insect pest of turf, landscapes.

The Japanese beetle, Popillia japonica Newman, is a widespread and destructive pest of turf, landscape, and ornamental plants in the United States. It is also a pest of several fruit, garden, and field crops, and has a total host range of more than plant species.

The Japanese beetle, Popillia japonica, is generally found east of a line running from Michigan, southern Wisconsin and Illinois, south to Alabama. Occasional introductions are made into more western states such as Nebraska, Missouri, Kansas, Colorado and Arkansas. The original population was detected in New Jersey inhaving been introduced from Japan.

Japanese beetles are a serious pest of flowers, trees and shrubs, fruits and vegetables, field crops and turf. Adults feed on more than plant species, whereas the grubs feed mainly on the roots of grasses. Adult Japanese beetle damage.

Adult Japanese beetles feed on. Japanese beetle (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae): Response to synthetic sex attractant plus phenethyl propionate: Eugenol Little was known on the biology of the Japanese beetle, Popillia japonica.

In most climates, Japanese beetles have a one-year life cycle. Adult beetles begin to emerge from the soil as early as the third week of May in the warmer climates and throughout June in the colder climates (Figure 8).

The peak emergence is usually four to five weeks after initial emergence begins. Figure 6. Full-grown Japanese beetle grub (6X.

The Complete Guide To Japanese Beetles; Japanese Beetle History. The Japanese Beetle is an invasive pest to the United States. It is originally from Japan, where it is not considered a serious pest because of the presence of natural predators and pathogens that naturally control the Japanese Beetle population.

This beetle was first discovered. The Japanese beetle is a species of scarab beetle. The adult measures 15 mm in length and 10 mm in width, has iridescent copper-colored elytra and a green thorax and head.

It is not very destructive in Japan, where it is controlled by natural predators, but in North America, it is a noted pest of about species of plants including rose bushes, grapes, hops, canna, crape myrtles, birch trees, linden trees.

Japanese beetles are a relatively new pest to Arkansas. During my Ph.D. research I investigated the pathogens and environmental factors influencing Japanese beetle populations in the state. The prevalence of various pathogens and parasitoids attacking Popillia japonica were recorded annually from wild populations.

Of specific interest was the microsporidian pathogen Ovavesicula popilliae. Six hundred significant beetle species are covered, with each entry featuring a distribution map, basic biology, conservation status, and information on cultural and economic significance.

Full-color photos show the beetles both at their actual size and enlarged to show details, such as the sextet of spots that distinguish the six-spotted tiger beetle or the jagged ridges of the giant-jawed sawyer s: The Japanese Beetle is a notorious pest that is not native to North America.

It is believed to have arrived via shipping transport from Japan into New Jersey in the early part of the 's. Since then, the beetle has made a home in most of the continent and has been moving through Europe as well.
