Household beetles

Beetles belong to the insect order Coleoptera.  They are one of the most diverse groups of insects in Texas.  Beetles are found in nearly every terrestrial and freshwater habitat in the world, so it should come as little surprise that beetles can also be found in homes and businesses.  Identify beetles by their hard pair of front wings.  These wing covers help beetles explore all sorts of habitats from soil to solid wood, to seeds and stored products.
