Argentinian Scarab

The adult beetle is the same size and shape to the African Black Beetle but is a mid tan colour with subtle striping on the hard outer covering of the wing.

  1. General Information

    The Argentinian Scarab has a one year life cycle, 2-4 weeks as eggs, 10-11 months as larvae, 4-5 days as pupae and 1-4 weeks as adults. Adults emerge from the pupal stage in summer when soil temperatures begin to warm. Peak laying period is late December, eggs hatch 2-4 weeks later and larvae begin to feed on turf roots. Damage is reminiscent of drought stress.
