Meet the May Bug
Published: 18 May 2023
Meet the Cockchafer, also known as the May Bug. These impressive insects can grow up to a whopping 3cm in length. But did you know that the adults beetles we see have spent the past three years underground as creamy-white grubs? Now, they're finally making their way to the surface to take flight.
Cockchafers are clumsy flyers, attracted to light and often crashing into our windows. They're loud too, making a humming buzz as they bumble around looking for love. But don't be afraid - they're completely harmless.
