The Asiatic beetle (Anomala Orientalis Waterhouse) in Connecticut has usually one generation a year, but in a small percentage of cases it takes two years to complete the life cycle. Hibernation takes place as a rule during the third instar. The larvae pupate during June and July, and adults occur during July and August. If the larvae hibernate during the first instar, they do not complete development the following season but go thru as larvae and pupate a year later. This insect seriously injures lawns by eating the grass roots during the larval stages. The injury is particularly noticeable during September. The adults are not,pests of any importance.
