Grapevine Hoplia!

Recommended Posts

Found this guy flying around the apartment tonight! Though it was hard to get a decent shot of him cause he would not stand still.

 

Any tips on how to care for these species? I know the adults normally feed on grapevines but I'm curious if there are any other sources of food/nutrition? I heard from elsewhere they've been noted to feed on spinach and Virginia Creeper.

They liked my beetle jellies. So I would assume they also feed on fruits/ juice.

 

Oh really? I may have to order some of those sometime. Especially if I run into any more beetles.

I harvested some nearby virginia creeper and put him in his new cage, and he immediately started devouring the leaves! Glad I found a good food source, seeing as the creeper is technically in the grape family.

That's good to know! Hopefully you can find some more of these guys!

Well obviously. XD It comes with the name. But they usually go for the leaves of the plant as well. So far he's been enjoying leaves.
