Happy mother’s day! Thanks to all those moms who are always there for us through thick and thin – especially my mom!
The beetles exhibit some instances of parental care, but there are few that do so extensively (unlike some other insect groups like the roaches – yes, roaches are great moms!). Here’s to the beetle families of note that provide excellent parental care – Silphidae, Erotylidae, and Scarabaeidae! Are there other beetle families with notable parental care? I’m sure I’m missing some – hats off to all of you!
