Row cover might be easier to use, but overheating is an issue unless you can find some really lightweight row-cover.

Life History. Adults emerge in the spring, and then feed avidly on the flowers of various plants. Eggs are deposited in the soil during the early summer and hatch in 1–2 weeks.

Larvae feed in the soil on decaying vegetable matter, and are fully grown in about two months. They then pupate, each in an earthen cell. Also observed in Asiatic garden beetle was the rickettsial disease Rickettsiella popilliae, which imparts a blue-green color to grubs.

Life Cycle and Description. There is a single generation per year in New York. Both second and third instars survive the winter, though the majority of larvae are third instars.

Basic grub biology White grubs are the immature, or larval stage of a group of stout-bodied beetles in the family Scarabaeidae (the scarab beetles). Most of the important species, including Japanese beetles, masked chafers, European chafer, green June beetle, Oriental beetle and Asiatic garden beetle, have 1-year life.

Asiatic lilies are relatively pest-free and easy to grow. Few diseases seem to bother them; however, slugs may damage foliage and buds. Also, the lily beetle is threatening to become a major problem. Look for a bright, orange-red, quarter-inch-long beetle eating the leaves.

Due to this habit they may be found in any area of the home. The complete life cycle, therefore, requires 6 months to 2 years for completion. One generation per year is normal. Mealworms and darkling beetles are rarely seen in the wild, but when they are, it is likely to be in a field where wild grasses flourish and seeds are plentiful.

The asiatic garden beetle has a branched anal slit and has a very distinctive semicircle of spines just in front of the slit. In addition the mandibles ("jaws") have an enlarged growth on the side. Although they are small, the grubs tend to be quite aggressive, especially when they are.
