Can anyone help me identify this bug please?
There are literally 100's possibly thousands of these in my garden and I want to try and find out what they are.
I've attached a couple of pictures but they are not too clear as I had to take them through the pint glass I'd captured it in. I'm pretty sure it's a beetle as it has 6 legs and a solid looking wing casing. The main body of it is a sort of bronze colour and the head is either black or green. My garden is very over grown with some grass about 40cm high, and they seem to be flying around at grass level. They are about 1cm in lenth.
If you need any other details just let me know.
Well they are certainly not onions [in response to personal email]
From what I can see I would be reasonably confident that these are the Garden Chafer, Phyllopertha horticola.
This is a common species and adults are often found in good numbers on low growing plants and shrubs in early summer. The adults nibble leaves and the larvae feed on roots and are considered a garden pest if too abundant - sounds as if they have everything they need in your garden.
I agree that the bug is a Garden Chafer. (very confidently)
