Hello all :)

 

I just wanna ask something about beetles, as you see, I don't really know much about these creatures.

 

I want to ask, whether do beetles bite humans by the fingers or hands and, do beetles seldom fly and only fly when they really have to?

Hi PIPI,

 

Some beetles are capable of biting humans, however very very few ever do. I've never heard of a serious injury, accidental or otherwise.

 

Some beetles fly a lot during the day and others fly only when they need to at night. They do it only for very short periods of time.

 

Some beetles don't have wings (like tenebrionid darklings), but most beetles do have wings and do fly occasionally.

 

The cetoniid fig beetles of the USA are commonly observed flying during the day. Ladybugs too!
