What do you find in June?

Yes, a ten striped June Bug in your house. GROSS! YUKKY! BLAH!!!!!
This nasty thing is Huge! Like a 3 inches and fat and gross. Sorry to all you insect lovers but I am NOT a fan of insects.

My research indicates that this is the Ten-Lined June Beetle (Polyphylla decemlineata). Apparently, it lays its eggs at the base of conifers, where the larva (grub) lives for 3 to 4 years, eating the roots of the tree. Then it emerges as an adult, mates and returns to the soil to lay eggs. The adults feed on the foliage of conifers
