The facts about beetle and their types

The beelte is one of the most common insects in the world. Some beetle are bright, shiny and rainbow-colored. Beetles have a pair of front wings, whih protect thir long or round- shaped body.

Most beetle are solitary and some are social . Beetle They are found in almost all types of habitats, but are not known to occur in the sea or in the polar regions. They interact with their ecosystems in several ways. beetles live n land as well as in water. They often feed on plants and fungi, break down animal and plant debris, and eat other invertebrates.

Like all insects, beetles bodies are divided into three sections: the head, the thorax, and the abdomen. Beetles are generally characterized by a particularly hard exoskeleton and hard forewings (elytra). The beetle's exoskeleton is made up of numerous plates called sclerites, separated by thin sutures. This design provides armored defenses while maintaining flexibility.

The eyes are compound and may display remarkable adaptability, as in the case of whirligig beetles , where they are split to allow a view both above and below the waterline.Other species also have divided eyes – some longhorn beetles and weevils – while many have eyes that are notched to some degree.

Beetles' antennae are primarily organs of smell, but may also be used to feel out a beetle's environment physically. They may also be used in some families during mating, or among a few beetles for defence.

A single female may lay from several dozen to several thousand eggs during her lifetime. The development of the Beetles like most other insects consists of four main stages: the egg, the larva, the pupa, and the imago or adult. The larvae are commonly called grubs and the pupa are called cocoons.

 

Goliath beetles

The Goliath beetles are among the largest insects on Earth, if measured in terms of size, bulk and weight. Goliath beetles measure from 60–110 millimetres for males and 50–80 millimetres for females, as adults, and can reach weights of up to 80–100 grams in the larval stage, though the adults are only about half this weight.

It has a shiny brown, black and white markings on it's body and a horn-like stucture on its head that is used as a pry bar with which to fght with other males. The females range from a dark brown to silky white, but the males are normally brown/white/black or black/white.
Goliath beetles
Goliath beetles can be found in many of Africa's tropical forests, where they feed primarily on tree sap and fruit.

Goliath beetles, like almost all other beetles, possess a reinforced first pair of wings (called elytra) which act as protective covers for their secondary pair of wings and abdomen. Only the second pair of wings (which are large and membranous) are actually used for flying.
 

Ladybirds

Ladybirds also known as ladybugs or ladybeetles are small insects, ranging from 1 mm to 10 mm and are commonly yellow, orange, or scarlet with small black spots on their wing covers, with black legs, head and antennae. A very large number of coccinellid species are mostly, or entirely, black, grey, or brown and may be difficult for non-entomologists to recognize as Ladybirds.

Ladybirds are found worldwide in UK, Ireland, Australia, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, South Africa, New Zealand, India, Malta, some parts of Canada and the US.

Ladybirds are generally considered beneficial to gardeners, as they typically eat aphids, scale insects, mealybugs, and mites throughout the winter.
