June bugs arenít bugs at all.
They are beetles who have a strange call.

The babies, who live in the ground,
Suck the sap from tender roots and make not a sound.

These beetles are the farmerís foe.
They eat his fruits and vegetables as they go.

Metallic green is the color they wear,
They will hit your car and make you swear.

From your hummingbird feeder they will steal the nectar,
Of humans and birds they are no respecter.

Good thing they donít last long,
To a long list of pests they belong.
