My goodness - those must be severely deprived June bugs to be out after dark
eating tree leaves.  Here, they lift off from the blackberries (if they
aren't too drunk to fly) like a swarm of hornets, in broad, hot, July summer
daylight.  Very startling to be deeply entangled in a wild bramble patch and
have a bunch go off all at once.  They also go after any other kind of soft
fruit - pears, raspberries..I can't imagine them eating ol' smelly rotten
iris rhizomes.  Does Erwinia help decompose fruit?
