Beetles make up the largest category of insects in the world, accounting for approximately 25% of all life forms on earth. Several types of beetles feed on wood. This can cause a lot of damage to wood structures primarily because while the wood is being eaten, the beetles remain unseen. This is true of Powder Post Beetles, Old House Borer Beetles, Bark Beetles, Citrus Long-Horned Beetles, Asian beetles, and other species. Not 100% sure of this species....best guess dung beetle......Dung beetles are beetles that feed partly or exclusively on dung. A dung beetle can bury dung 250 times heavier than itself in one night. That's a lot of dung......Available as 8 x 11 or 11 x 17 b & w or color photo or watercolor print on Hahnemuhle Museum Etching Fine Art Inkjet Paper and each photograph is personally approved and hand-signed by me, the artist
