Cranbourne, one of Melbourne's outer eastern suburbs, suffered a plague of cockchafers over the weekend:

Senior Constable Phil Watts said the [cockchafers] were up to seven centimetres deep at the back door of the Cranbourne police station and forced a nearby takeaway to close. "There were millions upon millions of them. They were everywhere," he said.

I'm glad it didn't happen in my neighbourhood; I can't remember where I last left my bicycle clips.
