Adults: Rose Chafers range from 1.7-2cm. They are an iridescent bronze-green colour, with tiny hairs under their bodies. The main body also has creamy coloured streaks.
Tip* Not to be confused with the much rarer, Noble Chafer, whose protective wing casings are highly textured, and associated with the countryside.
Larvae: Grubs are large, white, 'C' shaped grubs that can be found in the soil throughout winter. The larvae pupate during spring, forming a protective casing that shields them during development to their next life stage.
Pupae: Often found in an ovular, mud case. They are golden brown and shiny, with the beetles and legs visible.
Eggs: Currently unavailable.
