Top 10 Beetles Native to Virginia

Flower Longhorn Beetle:The flower longhorn beetle is one of the longer beetles native to Virginia, similar in shape to the fire-colored beetle but even longer.

Flat-Headed Bald Cypress Sapwood Beetle:The Flat-Headed Bald Cypress Sapwood Beetle is a ‘hard’ beetle, meaning it feels like a small rock if you pick one up. 

Fire-Colored Beetle:The fire-colored beetle is wicked-looking when it’s still in the larvae stage. However, it resembles a simple love bug when it becomes an adult. 

Emerald Ash-Borer:Another one of the many metallic-colored beetles, the Emerald Ash-Borer, as its namesake suggests, is emerald-metallic in appearance. 

Earth-Boring Scarab Beetle:An earth-boring scarab beetle looks like a cross between a spider and a Kevlar helmet. Thick, hairy legs protruding from a candied orange and brown, segmented, rounded shell.

Click Beetle:The click beetle is an interesting beetle with antennae that look like massive eyelash extensions. 

Black Vine Weevil:The black vine weevil sounds like a pretty insidious little beetle. Unfortunately, they are capable of ravaging crops even if they’re having a particularly bad day.

Black Carpet Beetle:Like all carpet beetles, the black carpet beetle mainly feeds on keratin found in human and pet hair.

Big Dipper Fire Fly: Big dipper fireflies are typically found when you kick over a stone or a large chunk of a felled tree out in the middle of nowhere. 

Ant-Like Longhorn Beetle:They lack the destructiveness of other borer beetle types because of their diversity in tree choices. Ant-likes prefer ash, maple, hemlock, fir, oak, and pine.
