Scarab beetles are notable herbivores active during the day. The larvae live in the ground and feed upon plant roots. These young insects are known as white grub. The cockchafer (also known as the maybug) is the most common scarab beetle. A few other species are characteristic for the dunes. The garden chafer (Phylloperta horticola) is found often on burnet roses. Sometimes in the month of June, these insects eat all the leaves of the plant. The large pine chafer is a rare species found in the pine woods along the coast.
