Seasonal development and life cycle—Fuller rose beetle
Fuller rose beetle adults lay their tiny eggs in organic matter
on the soil or on branches, leaves, or fruit. The emerging larvae
enter the soil and feed on roots for 6 to 10 months and then pupate.
Most adults emerge
between June and November, but a few can emerge from pupae during
each month of the year. Adults feed on foliage or blossoms.
