I was repotting a bunch of trees and plants this weekend when I made a nasty discovery!
I thought I had a cockchafer infestation, but now I wonder if maybe they were these bad boys:
Do any of you know anything about insects? I figured they were cockchafers and left them to the ravenous mynah birds who swooped down and ate them the minute I went inside.
If they were stag beetles though, I’d have preferred not to kill them.
From what I’ve read, stag’s don’t feed on roots though, which the larvas I found were defintely doing (all the trees were very stunted compared to the ones in grub-free pots.
