Scarab beetles

Scarab beetles have hard, stout bodies. The last three to seven segments of the antennae are leaflike and capable of opening or closing. Familiar members of this family include the May or June beetles, Japanese beetles and rose chafers. The larvae or grubs develop in the soil. They are thick, C-shaped white grubs with well developed thoracic legs. Mature adults and larvae range in size from 4 to 30 mm.
