A few reports of metallic adult beetles have been coming my way this week. I thought it might be too early to see adult Japanese beetles in Iowa. But literally as I am writing this article, a Japanese beetle flies into my office through an open window - guess that answers my question! Some of you may have questions regarding identification of scarab beetles, or beetles in the insect family Scarabaeidae.
