Appearance Golden buprestid beetles are known as jewel beetles or metallic beetles because of their glossy, iridescent colors. This is the largest family of beetles with around 15,000 species known. Their length ranges from 3-80 mm long. There are a variety of bright colored beetles in complicated patterns. Habitat Golden buprestid beetles will usually lay their eggs on roots, logs, stems and leaves. Once the larvae are born, they will feed on the solid wood or bark sometimes into large tunnels as they grow. Entry and Damage Damage only occurs where a continuing supply is available. It's important to keep all wood piles above ground to avoid golden buprestid beetles feeding off these materials.
