While digging in my flower beds last year, I came across these red cocoon looking things in the ground. Could anyone tell me what they were? [Smile]

I tried looking on the internet for information on the japanese beetle, but I could not find a picture of one in the cocoon. But, that sounds like what it might be. [Wink]

Japanese beetles lay eggs and as far as I know don't have cocoons, do you mean Larvae? White grubs?

The things that I found in the ground were red and hard and looked like a cocoon. When I stepped on one, yellowish green stuff oozed out. I did not find any this year when I was digging in my flowerbeds.
