Ground Beetle Life Cycle

Ground beetles go through "complete metamorphosis". They hatch from an egg laid in the soil as small larvae and then begin to eat. They will eat and grow in size for up to two years and then "pupate" in the soil. In the spring the adult beetle hatches out of the soil and begins its adult phase where it will feed, mate and lay eggs of its own.
