Predaceous ground beetle larva?


Recommended Posts


I found this little guy in one of my pit fall traps.





Anyone know what it is? I am thinking it may be a ground beetle larva of some sort.


If so I may try breeding them again... I didn't know the larva looked like this. I may try getting it to eat something other than crickets.

I just dug a hole, put a plastic cup in it, and pushed the dirt so it was even with the top of the cup ;) lol


I have five of the traps in my yard, and this is the first one of these I have seen.

Ya, it looks mean!


I was hoping it would be something a bit more unusual than a ground beetle. I will just have to keep it and see I guess ;) Maybe it will be a special type of ground beetle :D
