As Japanese exotic insects migrate into the United States, trees and plants in American forests and gardens are suffering a great deal of damage.
The life span of the beetle usually ranges from 30 to 45 days, but there are plenty of plants to eat. Pettish County, Missouri, USA, is also suffering from head scarabs.
Alopter larvae like roots of grasses and other garden plants, and the full-grown alopecia arena is known to prefer fruits, recordings, roses, shrubs and other vegetables, especially those exposed to the sun.
On the other hand, eggplant, onion, lettuce, parsley and peas are not preferred, and geranium is deadly to beetles, avoiding geranium.
Trees and plants damaged by the beetle have a bad influence on the plants to the extent that they can not survive. This is because the scarab loses its photosynthesis by eating tissue between the veins of the leaves.
To prevent damages caused by beetles, plants should be hydrated regularly and weeds removed.
