iridescent beetlePest Of The Week: The Christmas Beetle

What better pest of the week for the week before Christmas, than the Christmas beetle. Christmas beetles (Anoplognathus) are actually not a specific beetle pest, but rather a large classification of 35 different types of beetles that seem to appear every year in Australia about Christmas time. They appear at Christmas time each year because of their life-cycle.

The most common characteristic among the 35 different species of Christmas beetle, are their beautiful iridescent color. Upon first glance, this iridescent color appears to be green, but can change to various colors depending on the angle in which you view the beetle. Christmas beetles measure about an inch in length, and love to eat eucalyptus.

Christmas beetles become serious pest control problems when they swarm during the holiday months. Not only do they destroy the eucalyptus trees on your property, they are also a serious nuisance. They love the outdoor lighting of your Australian home, and will make a loud thud when they crash-land against your house.
