I am fairly new at seroius gardening, but have managed to carry on and do fairly well in spite of heat, drought and various other set-backs. Now however, I may have met my match! In the last couple of weeks I have had to share my garden with a lot of HUGE beetles. They are 1.5-2 inches long, fat, medium brown and somewhat shiny. PLEASE, what are they and what can they do to my garden??? (and me!!!)
I have a lot of roses, perennials and bushes, but I am ready to cement the whole thing over and paint it green!
Any advise would be most welcome.
