These beetles are beautiful with there shiny shield and the sound they make while they are flying is very impressive. A deep loud buzzing you hear coming from a distance. The beetles occasionally eat a flower bottom, but I would not count the rose beetle to the pests. There larva eat dead organic material and do not harm any plants.
