When do june bugs go away?
A June Bug, or Phyllophaga sp, will begin hibernating in August.
A female will begin laying eggs in late June. They lay the eggs deep into the ground and in 3-4 week they hatch into grubs, then grow into instars. In late August they burrow over 1 meter into the ground to begin hibernating. Hibernation will last until the next Spring when they emerge.
June Bugs have a 2-3 year lifespan depending on the species. The adults live on leaves of hardwood trees while the grubs feed on roots while they are underground.
