It has generally been considered that most species of Pleurophorus seldom cause primary injury. Chapin (1940) believed that they are humus-infesting. However, Hatch (1946) reported that E. J. Newcomer found P. caesus Creutz infesting tomato and cabbage transplants in a hotbed at Yakima, Wash., in April 1941. Hatch also stated that this little scarab was first recorded in the United States in 1871 and occurs in many Eastern and Midwestern States as well as California and Oregon.
