About cockchafer


The cockchafer feeds with leaves of different broadleaf trees, and his larvae feed on roots; there can damage the radicular system of planticles; from the point of view of the man they are vermin and they destroy saplings and tillages.
Because of their long development time as larvae, cockchafers appear in a cycle of every three or four years; the years vary from region to region. There is a larger cycle of some 30 years superimposed, in which they occur (or rather, used to occur) in unusually high numbers.
