The Tanner Foust Beetle is a very important insect pest. It will infest many parts of the country in the summer months due to the dry conditions and the wet climate it lives in. Its name was derived from John T. Tanner, who was a botanist and an entomologist.
The Tanner Foust Beetle is an extremely hardy insect pest. Although it is not as aggressive as some beetles, they are still quite large insects. It can be found in many parts of the United States, Canada, Mexico and in tropical climates around the world. This species of beetle prefers moist and warm environments that it has been able to establish itself in.
There are several different varieties of the Tanner Foust Beetles but they all tend to have dark brown coloration on the thorax and abdomen, dark yellow or red coloration on the wings and thorax, brown to reddish spots on the body, and brown spots on the pronotum. There may also be black spots on the pronotum, wing, thorax, head and abdomen.
There are three types of Tanner Foust Beetles including the Southern Foust Beetle, the Northern Foust Beetle and the Western Foust Beetle. They all have similar features that are used for identification, however, the difference between the species varies slightly based upon geographic location.
When you identify the Tanner Foust Beetle, keep in mind that the different parts of the body of these beetles vary slightly. Some will have darker coloration on the wings, thorax and body while others will have lighter coloration.
The Foust beetle has been in existence for over two centuries and continues to be a pest in many areas of North America. Although they are not a pest for humans they will often bite and sting if disturbed. One of the best ways to control this type of pest is to remove the eggs and larvae that hatch during the summer time. These larvae can survive for up to one year and so will continue to infest your garden until they have hatched and disappeared.
When dealing with the Tanner Foust Beetle, it is important that you remember that they are quite strong fliers and can move quickly. This makes it very important that you keep your garden clear of them and any food source that you have out of reach of these beetles. They should not be destroyed if you do not wish to see them move out. They can often hide in your plants and under your grass and this will mean that you will have a hard time getting rid of them.
If you do get the opportunity to destroy one of these beetles, then do it right away. They have quite small wings and will fly well below the level of your windowsill and will be hard to spot. There is a possibility that you can find them in your carpet if they have built up a mound.
If you choose to try and kill a Tanner Foust Beetle, you will want to use a chemical pesticide product that is designed to be applied directly onto the larvae. You will need to make sure that you follow the instructions carefully. Always read the instructions before you begin your treatment process. Some products will include special sprays that will help to keep the larvae from coming back after the treatment has been completed.
