Every different species of beetle eats different things. Most

beetles that live on leaves also feed on them. Some species, such

as weevils, only eat very specific plants. Most beetles that feed

on leaves will eat just about any plant. Many beetles are

predatory, which means they prey on smaller animals. They generally

eat any small insect, spider, bird or crustacean that they can

find. A few species only prey on very specific animals. A few

species of beetles eat poo, dead animals and fungi.

Beetles are the most diverse group of insect that there is.

There is almost a particular beetle for about every plant there


Rose beetles eat red and white roses.
