Fruit Beetle Care

General care instructions for fruit beetles

There are many colourful species of fruit beetle from both Africa, South America and Asia. As their name suggests fruit plays a larger role in their diets, but luckily for those in the hobby, their care is very similar; both as grubs and as adults. Fruit beetles range from the commonly kept Pachnoda beetles (sun beetles) to the larger Mecynorrhina (african flower beetles)
