Chew on my nutsedge rose chafer

The rose chafer is a bold beetle and nutsedge an even bolder invasive weed that resembles grass. If only we could train the chafer to nibble the nutsedge...

Name: Rose chafer

Occupation: This beetle is a general feeder, which means it will eat most anything. However, it has a preference for grapes, fruit blossoms, and roses, hence its disarmingly lovely name (the first part of it anyway).

Prevention: To be researched

Finger squishing color:
It's not very juicy, so just kind of brownish

Good beetle or bad beetle:
Bad bad very bad
