Pest World for Kids: How Many Species of Beetle Are There?

Have you ever wondered how many species of beetles there are? The answer is: a lot!

There are over 350,000 types of beetles living on Earth, with scientists discovering more every day. Did you know that some of beetles that are alive today were also around when dinosaurs walked the planet? These pests can adapt to their surroundings, whether it be warmer or rainier than what they’re used to. This flexibility allows beetles to survive in almost any habitat and continue reproducing strong offspring.

Depending on the species of beetle, they can spread germs to the food in your kitchen or even chew through your couch.
