I am overrun with them. They seem much keener on the sage than my thyme (even though they're planted in the same large pot). I had noticed it was nibbled for ages, but didn't worry too much about it - but last week I went out and the plant was half dead with 20+ beetles sunning themselves on it. Ugh.
I'm afraid I'm now squishing them if I see them, without spending time on a major hunt.
They are gorgeous, and I don't mind a few, but I draw the line when they start to kill things!
