Beetles definitely love warm and dry weather. Saturday it rained and yesterday was a little cooler with clouds. Both days had very little Beetle activity. Today they are everywhere, oddly they are mostly staying off the Apple/Cherry Trees and instead I’ve finding them on the pine tree, a few odd bushes and as a group of ~20 on the lawn.
Beetles definitely attract each other so keeping up the hourly rounds to make sure they don’t become a plague.
Side Note: I think tall grass attracts them as well… I’ve fallen a little behind in the mowing, oops.
