The only use I have noticed for these creatures is fodder. The grubs are eaten by a variety of bigger, hungry creatures. The grown beetles seem to be a favorite, post mortem, of ant colonies. If you want a larger ant colony in your yard, provide these red, shiny lovelies and watch their destruction while the colony grows and grows.
