June Bugs are appropriately named because they tend to make their appearance in the early summer months, emerging in great quantities in the month of June. They are found all over North America. As an adult, these bugs feed on vegetation. They eat during the night, usually on the leaves from trees and bushes. You might recognize them as the insect that swarms around your front porch light at night. June bugs are less than one inch in length and have a dark brown, hard casing. They typically hide in the trees during the day and fly around at night. They are extremely attracted to light (hence the porch light hang out spot). To keep these pests away from your home, try to keep outdoor lights off.
