Identify brilliant beetles on your patch

Stuff you'll need

  • Weather appropriate clothes
  • Curiosity!

These colourful minibeasts come in all shapes and sizes.  Look out for beetles scurrying around and among deadwood, tree stumps, flowers and plants. The best time to spot them is during the warmer months of the year.  See how many of them you can find.

Use this wonderful resource to identify the beautiful bugs which have made a home on your patch. For more brilliant spotter sheets, check out the Wildlife Watch website.
