Summer is beetle season on Northern Hemisphere islands. June introduced a handful, and there’s even more in July. This month also brings a couple series firsts, namely the blue weevil beetle and the earth-boring dung beetle. A ton of this month’s beetles spawn on coconut trees, or palm trees, so if you don’t have a ton on your island, now’s a good time to start planting!

Southern Hemisphere

There are no newcomers to the Southern Hemisphere’s seasonal bugs and fish lists in July.
