Rove beetle – adult (Tyler Wist, AAFC)

This week’s Insect of the Week is the Rove Beetle. This beetle feeds on aphids, mites, eggs and larvae of many other insects present under plant debris, rocks, stones, carrion, dung, and other materials. It is also an important natural enemy of the pea leaf weevil. One species of the rove beetle, Aleochora bilineata, is an important natural enemy of cabbage, seedcorn, onion and turnip maggots.
