In all honesty, beetles can be one of the most annoying of garden pests that a gardener can find themselves faced with. For some reason, these particular insects are pretty difficult to deal with. They not only have a voracious appetite, they can fly. Beetles are usually forgotten about until they have begun to do a lot of damage, and then become a major hassle to get rid of. That is, unless you know the proper steps for dealing with beetles. Once you have those basic steps identified, you can begin preparing for, or even getting rid of, the beetles that can be affecting your garden.
One last piece of advice that you should be aware of. There is, currently, no permanent way to really prevent any beetle infestation. This means that if you have them, then you are likely to be stuck with them for the foreseeable future. All you can really do is try to mitigate any damage that they may cause, and try to limit their population in your yard.
