They also feed on flower blossoms," University of Minnesota Entomologist Jeffrey Hahn told KARE 11. "They start coming out, basically, the first week of July. So, think of the Fourth of July when Japanese beetles will come out and then they are active for the rest of the summer. I mean, we will see them into September."
