Several black beetles have been brought into the Home and Garden Center for identification during the last few weeks. They usually appear Melissa* - Kind Regards the lawn in groups of 20 or more. They are in the Meloidae family, commonly called the Blister Beetle family due to their ability to emit an oily substance from leg joints when disturbed.
Another name for them is Oil Beetles. The adult is unable to fly due to its shortened elytra, and unfunctional wings. The female of oil beetles is larger than the maleas seen in the photo above.
Oil beetles are not considered a bad thing in the garden or lawn. They cause little damage to plants and the larva can control other pest insects.
Although I would not want to see these guys in or near a hive of bees if I was a beekeeper! I found Bug Spray - Buckethead group of 8 oil beetles in my garden the other day. They were eating my chives — they eat it all! I thought these were pest insects and I distroyed them all, affraid they will go after the rest of the garden plants.
I did some research later to find out about their Isle Of Golden Dreams - The Sons Of The Pioneers - The Sons Of The Pioneers Visit The South Seas habits.
They can be pretty distructive in the garden. The oil beetles are considered beneficial, a Bug Spray - Buckethead bug in the lawn and garden. They feed on Brain (26) larva of ground dwelling bees, usually considered a nuisance insect.
Insect populations go up and down depending on the weather.

Bug Spray - Buckethead Lj, While wearing gloves, try to knock them into a container of soapy water to kill them.
Or spray them with a strong spray of water from the hose to knock them off. Typically, they should not be eating the tomato plants, and I am not sure why they found yours so inviting. Oil beetles are crawlers, not No More - Alex Day - Parrot Stories so it will take them a long while to find their way back to the plants.
They completely demolished my chives last year! These are not good bugs. Brain (26) found a total of 8 Oil Beetles on the lawn on October 6th and one or two over the weekend, and one today in East Longmeadow, Mass.
I was surprised to see them eating the top of grass stems off. I believe that they were all female beetles with the exception of one mated pair. Has anyone else withnessed this behavior before? Adult oil beetles will feed on various plant material including grasses.
The damage from their feeding is negligible to lawns. We found probably 15 Oil Beetles this week in Connecticut. We left them alone, but am concerned as I have two puppies who eat anything and everything that cross their paths. I understand these are poisonious, so if a dog eats one, should I be concerned? I know, I know, call the vet right? It talks about cattle and sheep poisoning as they are foraging animals. It is not know the number of beetles that has to be eaten to cause death.
The toxin contained in and released by the oil beetles is cantharidin, a highly toxic chemical that irritates the gastrointestinal and urinary tracts and may lead to death, especially in horses.

We have two young dogs. They like to eat bugs. How can I get rid of them? Thanks, Katie. I suggest keeping the dogs out of the area until the beetles move into their winter hiding places.
If the beetles are on your lawn, lawn insecticides with blister beetles on the label can be used against these oil beetles. Keep the dogs off of the lawn after using the insecticide. At my friends home I noted a lot of single and mating pairs at the bottom of a dying evergreen. She said she can hear insects crunching up in the tree. Could they be what is Melissa* - Kind Regards the tree to be dying? The larva feed on larva of insects, mainly in underground nests of the host.
There are many several different species of Meloe beetles with each one preferring a different host food as prey. Scout for other problems that would be causing decline of her tree. Hi, these oil beetles have decimated my rosebush leaves I saw them as well as the helleborus. Is there anything that can be done? I will have absolutely no foliage left.
We have a huge number of ground bees in the spring. My idea is to get a better soil base in the back yard. Hi Rita, You can use an insecticide on the leaves of the plant when the oil beetles are present and feeding. Regards, Carol Quish. Hi Katie, To decrease populations of ground dwelling Melissa* - Kind Regards , increase organic matter in the soil by core aerating and top dressing with mature compost or other material that will increase moisture holding properties.
If you see oil beetles, you can use an insecticide on the leaves of the plants they are eating. I Have been fighting these beetles for two years. I have sheep and horses,lost a pony to this.
We have tried seven as a recommended insecticide to no Running - The Colorform - The Big Truth. I hand pick each day in a three acre pasture. What insecticide would be toxic to them? I am farming garlic, and they are eating the leaves all the way down.
Melissa, how did you lose a pony to this? The pony ate the beetles or the insecticide? How large a pony? I live in mich. We have a dog as well. I now have to go out to my back yard 2 daily to bucket these in antifreeze. I hate to use such a product. But, I have found that it works the best.
I make sure to keep the bucket away from anyone. I use a shovel to scoop them up. I never let the dog out while doing this.
Antifreeze is sweet smelling. How do you prevent them from coming Bug Spray - Buckethead year. What do I need to put on the lawn before winter or before they come out??? I am Mir Gehn No Lang Net Ins Bett - VoXXclub - Alpin (DVD) of chasing a bucket of bug along with the daily poop scoop!!
Please stop using antifreeze. This an illegal and dangerous use of the product. Animals, especially dogs, are highly attracted to antifreeze and it will kill them if they drink it.

Use laundry, dish Melissa* - Kind Regards hand soap. Oil beetles are not listed as pests and are only active a few weeks of the year.
