Hercules Beetles

The Hercules beetle is the largest and strongest of the scarab beetle family, measuring from 1 to six inches. They are typically green, gray or tan-colored with black or brown spots. Adult males have two large horns for defense – one on the head and one on the thorax. Female beetles do not have horns. Some species can be found in the eastern and southeastern parts of the country, from New York, Illinois and Indiana, and from Florida to the Gulf of Mexico and eastern Texas. The beetle roams forest floors, feeding on rotten fruit and the bark of ash trees.
