Collection: Live Beetles For Sale UK

Take a look at our collection of captive bred larvae and live beetles for sale in the UK.

We currently breed 10+ species of beetles, including flower beetles, rhinoceros beetles and stag beetles for sale.

The life cycle of a beetle is a fascinating example of complete metamorphosis, meaning it has four distinct stages: egg, larva, pupa, and adult. Each stage looks completely different and has a different function.

  • Egg: The female beetle lays her eggs in a safe location that provides food for the developing larvae. Beetle eggs can be laid singly or in clusters, depending on the species.
  • Larvae :The larvae is the feeding stage of the beetle's life cycle. It hatches from the egg and spends most of its time eating.
  • Pupae: When the larva has finished growing, it enters the pupal stage. The pupa is a motionless stage where the larva's body is transformed into an adult beetle. The pupa is often enclosed in a cocoon or pupal case.
  • Adult: The adult beetle emerges from the pupa and is the reproductive stage of the beetle's life cycle. Adult beetles have wings and are capable of flight. They will mate and lay eggs, starting the life cycle all over again.

Here at The Bug Room We offer both larvae and adult live beetles for sale UK.

The amount of time it takes for a beetle to complete its life cycle can vary depending on the species. Some beetles can complete their life cycle in a few weeks, while others may take several years.
