Spotted Cucumber Beetles are agricultural insect pests.  They chew holes through the leaves and eat on  plant stems.  Adults come out of hibernation in early spring, and females lay eggs in the soil at the base of the plant.  The larvae, known as Southern Corn Root Worms, bore into the roots.  The larvae bore out of young corn plants causing them to break off.  The adults can transmit virus and bacterial diseases.
