very narrow, black beetles, 3/8" long
What are the very narrow, 3/8" long, black beetles on blooms of petunias and dahlias? They were very damaging. I live in NW Nebraska, Dawes Co.
Kyle, Thank you for replying to my request. After much more researching, I have determined the black beetles are lizard beetles. The photos I found of them were identical to the beetles I had here this summer. I have had them other years, but never that many! I don't know why they are called lizard beetles, they don't look like lizards! Thanks! Jeanne , Chadron NE
