Ask a Pro: Identifying a Lawn Pest

Camille Landry posted this on Jun 28, 2017



Can you identify these bugs and tell me what kind of chemical I can use to get rid of them.  We are having an evening wedding on July 22 in the back yard.  Help! I live in the San Jose Bay Area of California. 

Thank you,


June bug identification 



Solutions Response:


Hi Jerry,

This is a Japanese Beetle or common name June Bug. The larval stage is very destructive to turf and plant roots.

You need to apply Reclaim IT at a rate of 1oz per 1000sqft. Make sure to apply plenty of water to get could penetration beneath the soil surface. This is easily accomplished by using a hose end sprayer.

Both products can be found on our website at solutionsstores.comShould you have any other questions, please email or call me at 713-955-0932.

Thank you for the interest in Solutions and good luck.
