June Bugs Eat Plants

We planted our spring bulbs last month in honor of fall, in the front yard.  We found these strange little larvae and thought they were cicada larvae, took pictures, got giddy and then because we love most things buggy...we moved them somewhere else.  Then we found more and just decided to plant around them.  Still giddy we went inside to research them and found out they weren't cicada larvae but junebug larvae which happen to eat the roots of plants and flowers.  Like the ones we just had planted...apparently for them to eat so they can grow big and strong and we can dodge them as we walk in the front door next summer.

We had a good laugh. :)
